Once you are happy with your selection, press CMD + K (Or select Tools -> Crop) to crop your picture. Or remove everything outside the selection. If you close your Preview program now, you will still have your original picture. You will need to save it manually to keep the changes. You can do that either by pressing CMD + S, or select File -> Save.

Please note that your original file will not be saved. If you want to keep your original file along with the cropped version of it. I suggest you make a copy of the picture before you crop it.

That is how Mac crop pictures.
