    You should be able to manipulate the crop box by dragging one of the points on it in the direction you want.

    Aside from using the crop tool itself, you can also use the polygonal lasso tool to create whatever shape you wish around whatever you'd like to crop. Hold down the shift key while moving in between points in order to do straight lines. When you're done, complete the shape, and right-click the selection, and choose 'Layer via Cut'. This puts your selection on a new layer. You can then delete the layer below it, removing it from the image entirely.
