How To Crop An Image Using GIMP
Cropping an image involves selecting a certain portion of a larger image and creating a new image consisting only of that portion. It can be done to reduce background distraction, to show only the subject a photo, or just to edit out unwanted content from a picture. It is a very straightforward process to crop an image with GIMP:
- Select the crop tool in the toolbox. (You can also access it by using a shortcut – press the “C” key (caps lock on) while inside the image.)
- Now click and drag in the image to crop it.
- A dialog box will pop up. This allows you to further adjust the dimensions of the cropped region.
- Once you are ready to finalize the crop, click “Crop” in the dialog box.
