Ok, I've finally ordered my Photoshop CS5 book and it will be here soon :) I do have a question that has been bothering me and I'm sure it has just been something that I've missed...

Is there a tool or setting that when I crop a photo I can force my "cropped area" to keep the correct aspect ratio for standard photos?

Yep, if I remember correctly - I don't have Photoshop for a while now - you can adjust the crop tool options for that.

It's slightly counter-intuitive, but when you select the Rectangular Marquee tool (not the Crop tool), there are three options in the Style drop down: Normal, Fixed Ratio and Fixed Size. I think the Fixed Ratio option is what you're looking for.
