    Dean:

    Len is [offensive namecalling removed by poster] wrong!

    Draw a rectangle where you want to crop the image, fill any color, no stroke, opacity 0%, select that and the raster, now go to Object>Flatten Transparency, and make sure "Preserve Alpha Transparency" is UNchecked, and "Preserve Overprints ..." is checked. After this, with the group select tool Shift-deselect the portion you want to keep, and delete the rest.

    Old, decrepit, [offensive namecalling removed by poster] Bert does this the slow way.

    Set a clip path on a raster image, vector elements or a combination of both.
    Set a blending mode to the image+clipping path element. (multiply, darken, ect.)
    Flatten transparency.

    No need to clean up extra elements beyond the clip path. The clip path is still there allowing ease of stroking the path as needed.

    Note: the only extrenuous items that would need to be deleted afterwards is if the final clipped elements contained another clipped element that extends beyond the final clipped elements path.

    Why don't you go overprint something with ol' Rydog [no offensive language needed there].

    This is always good for winning bar bets too. Someone will say "you can't crop a raster file in illustrator" and I'll say "Ha, but you can" and they will say "no, you can't" and I'll say', "wanna bet" and utilizing the Bert method get free drinks for the rest of the night!

    I can't take credit for it, though, it was one of our Chinese counterparts who came up with it first.
