How to crop your images

Cropping an image is a way to change the edges of an image that you don’t want. The resulting image will be smaller and may have the new aspect ratio. The photo is an example of a large image that has been cropped to make it smaller.

Images don’t always show up in the size we want. Fortunately, we can cut them to the perfect width and height. This sometimes involves cropping the images, but you can do without them. Before we dive into how to crop an image, here’s what it means to crop a photo.

What does it mean to crop an image?

Harvestping means to discard unwanted portions of an image and preserve the important part. Note that cropping resizes an image, but it’s different than resizing images. This function typically changes a photo’s aspect ratio by making either the height or width a bit smaller.

For example, if there was a photo of you near the river but you just wanted a face, cropping will help you get it. This would make it possible to cut the face to remove the river and keep the face for the image only.

Here’s a comprehensive look at the different ways you can crop an image.

How to crop an image?

Now that you understand what it means to crop an image, here’s how to do it on both Windows and Mac.

For Windows

  1. Find the file you want to edit
  2. Click here prawym przyciskiem myszy i wybierz „edytuj”
  3. In the paint tool, click the rectangular marquee tool
  4. Drag on the image to capture the selected part
  5. Click here‘crop’ button

How to crop your imagesPaint has the tools you need to crop an image.

Your image should now be slicing properly.

For Mac

  2. Aprilo con "Anteprima"
  3. Click here‘Modifyor Toolbar’
  4. Select a tool „prostokątne zaznaczenie”
  5. Drag on the image to capture the selected part
  6. Click here‘crop’ button

Your image now shows only the selected part.

There are many systems that make it easier to crop an image. If you want to maximize your selection, it’s probably a good idea to try out a few of them before selecting one. Three that I feel work great are ILoveImage, LunaPic and Fotor. Take a look and see which one is easier to manage.

It’s not hard to trim your images down exactly the way you want them. Just make sure you’re using the right methods and tools. If you are, you’ll have perfectly cropped images in your photo libraries.

If you work with a lot of cropping images, it gets a little more difficult. You can weld your images together to cut them. But, if you want your images different colors, you can’t weld them together, instead you will have to crop each layer individually.

Here are the steps to follow to get startedcut the multilayer object in half:

1. Move the seeds aside.
2. Then place the square on top of the watermelon where you want to cut the watermelon in half.
3. Select a square and a green watermelon peel. Click hereA slice.
