Using Nikon Coolpix P510 camera. When I try to crop an image I receive a message "image cannot be modified" Help would be appreciated.

can you post the image? – akram Jul 14 '12 at 21:14
Is there any chance you've set image protection on for that image? – user2719 Jul 15 '12 at 7:32

It likely has to do with the image size that is selected. If you use those for 3:2, 16:9, or 1:1, most of the in-camera editing functions are not available. See manual page on "Picture Editing Functions." There is a footnote about the restrictions.
