How do I crop a layer to the size of the image?

When I copy in a layer from another file, for example a texture layer, that is larger than the image I am working, I'd like to crop that layer down to the size of the working image. Is there an easy way to do this?

Unfortunately, I don't seem to have that option. I've attached a screenshot (of a screenshot) showing both the size of the layer, and what happens when I select all and Edit ... there is no Crop option in the Edit list.

I've tried the Crop icon on the left, but I have not found any way to affect what is outside the visible area.

This is CS4 if that matters.

No worries.....

....and it was MY mistake....I did put Edit.....then I saw that was wrong and changed it....so you probably saw the post before I edited it.

Unfortunately you don't get notifications of post edits.

Sorry about that.

Regards.
MrTom.

That's pretty much what I did. I didn't, and I still don't, see any Delete option. I see Edit Post, Reply, Reply with Quote, and a Multi-quote icon. If I mouseover the Edit Post, it says "Edit/Delete", but when I click that, I still don't see any Delete option.

Try this after you click on Edit

Thanks, but it did NOT show the Delete button until after my 5th post. I suspect that was the problem.

You are correct. I should have looked at your post count. Our system does that automatically. Thanks for your patience.
