Thought for the day: A Different Way of Cropping
I recently found a new way, to me, of cropping a photo in PhotoShop. This was allows me more chances to review and recompose.

Setup
Duplicate layer (CMD-J)
Deselect the lower layer
Set the upper layer to allow Free Transform (CMD-T)

Action
Drag the image you want to crop to >>larger<< (I normally think I’m cropping down)
Consider and play with rotations (something I normally sometimes do)
Consider stretching the image (hold shift bar down when dragging the edge of the image). Maybe make the subject taller?

Exploring Further
Look into and play with the Edit > Transform commands. Some are useful to fix parallax problems with buildings but they can also be used to making shadows and more.

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
