I've been searching google for hours and still haven't been able to find any answers as to how to crop the middle of a picture out using iphoto. The cropping tool will only let me keep a select portion and take out the rest, but i just want to take the middle out and keep the other sides. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions.

    You can't do that with iPhoto. You may be able to do it with n external editor: In order of price here are some suggestions:

    Seashore (free)
    _[The Gimp|http://www.gimp.org/macintosh>_ also free
    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
    Acorn ($50 approx)
    [Pixelmator|http://www.pixelmator.com> ($60 approx.)
    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)

    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate.

    You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.
