    there are normally 3 options when you select area ("rectangular marquee tool" - the dotted square icon on the top-left)

    normal (no restrictions)
    fixed aspect ratio (e.g. 2 x 3)
    fixed size (e.g. 400pixel x 600pixels)

    (options normally viewed at the top tool bar)

    once highlighted - image -> crop!!!

    Take note to remove the numbers in "dpi" if you don't want PS CS to resize the photo for you...
