The crop tool can be used to crop and image or a layer.
At its most basic the crop tool allows you to drag a rectangle around an area and reduce your image or layer to only that content which is contained within that layer. There are several options which give a bit more flexibility and precision.
The two numbers on the left are the exact horizontal position and vertical position of the left and top of the cropping frame respectively. The numbers are the right are from top to bottom: width, height, and aspect ratio. Any one of these can be locked to allow you to manipulate the other two without losing the position or ratio of the locked property.
The button on the lower left will allow you whether you want the crop to apply to the entire image or just one layer. When you are ready, hit the crop button and the crop will apply to your image.
