    What exactly does the term "100% crop" mean? I see it all the time, but I've never found an explanation or definition of it.

    It is a small section of the picture when viewed at 100 percent.

    To do that, set your screen to view the picture at 100 percent and crop out a part of it.

    Because if you post a 10MP picture here, for example, imagine how big will be. :)
    So you need to post a 100% crop, meaning a sample viewed at 100% as sabbath99 said..
