How you crop an image and save it in Didger depends on which version you are using.
You can use the Image | Crop Image command or if you have a polygon that defines the clipping boundary, click the Image | Clip Image | Current Polygon command. The image can be exported using the File | Export command.
You can use either the Image | Extract Bitmap Region command or if you have a polygon that defines the clipping boundary, click the Image | Clip Image | Current Polygon command. The image can be exported using the File | Export command.
You can crop an image in a raster project using the Image | Extract Bitmap Region command. Then you can export it to a new raster file. The Extract Bitmap Region command will loose all georeferencing if the image is calibrated. If you want to retain the georeferencing, you can either re-georeference the extracted portion, or try cropping in a vector project instead. Just go to Edit | Undo New Bitmap to undo the cropping.
If the image is imported into a vector project, you can draw a polygon over the image, select the polygon and use the Image | Clip Image | Current Polygon command to clip the image to the polygon (you can delete the polygon afterwards if you want). Then, go to View | Project Limits and make sure there is a check mark next to "Clip Map Objects During Export". Then you can export the clipped image to a new raster file. Go to Image | Clip Bitmap | Remove All Clipping to remove the clipping and return the full bitmap.
