Media Library Edit Image Crop not working

  • Hi I would like to crop an image on my site through Media library, however when I click and drag on the image in edit mode, it just grabs the whole image and moves it instead of showing the selection functionality, which would then enable me to click the crop tool. The crop tool remains inactive. What can be going wrong? This works on my other wp sites.

    That looks OK. Have you tried increasing the memory available to PHP?

    Not sure if you mean you cannot crop at all after rubber-banding the area you want to crop, but if that is the case, this will help:

    Basically, you click the faded-out crop icon, rubber-band the crop area which then makes the crop icon active, then CLICK CROP AGAIN. Then the Save button.
