    aiyo... good tips heh. I always use the crop tool from the side panel.
    Your method seems works better

    now there it no draw
    crop then edit ...
    some auto-level / contrast works better generally when superfluous area are being crop off

    I always crop first, usually to a 2:3/3:2 format unless it really doesn't lend itself to the picture - then might have to go panoramic or something!

    It seems no point leveling when you have 'superfluous' pixels involved - think someone said this already.

    And always 'usm' at the end.
