Q: How do I crop?
Once files are open, you also can crop them as needed. Cropping changes the shape of an image or which pixels are visible.
- To start cropping, click the Crop button. An overlay appears over the image.
- You can drag the corner of the Cropping Overlay to remove parts of the image. The cropping box can also be dragged into a new position.
- If you need to crop to a specific aspect ratio, click the Aspect Ratio preset list. You can choose from a wide range of popular sizes in the list. If you need a custom size, choose Custom and enter the ratio for width and height.
- You can rotate the image in 90° increments using the first button below the aspect ratio selection. The next two buttons allow you to flip the image horizontally or vertically.
- Please note, cropping is per image. You cannot sync cropping to a group of images or store it with a preset.
- You can switch between four different composition guides while cropping with the buttons at the bottom of the crop tool. The first is a grid to help check for alignment. The second is the rule of thirds and the third is the golden ratio which help with positioning a subject. The fourth is the Golden Spiral which is useful when cropping. You can find many useful articles about the artistic decisions when cropping available online.
