    Sometimes to evaluate the performance of the lens ( or even sensor )
    Or pixel peeping for the fun of it

    " crop " is a section of a picture
    100% is full size uncompressed in all its glory
    100% crop is a section of the original full sized pic

    For example :

    here is a picture
    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2585/...db4004f4_o.jpg

    with its 100% crop at a corner
    http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4009/...71bdf732_o.jpg
