Pro Tip: Be sure to save a copy of your original image, so you can always go back and try out different crops.

Cutting Corners

Click the dropdown menu under Aspect Ratio and look through the various crops. We offer a range of different presets, so you never have to worry about getting dimensions right. If you’re a social media guru, you’ll love our presets for Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Pinterest. But no matter what your next big project is, we’ve got you covered with crops for just about every photo size.

Pro Tip: The lock aspect ratio keeps the relationship between width and height proportional, guaranteeing that your image comes out looking just right.

Orientation Made Easy

Once you’ve decided which aspect ratio made the cut, choose either Landscape or Portrait under Orientation, depending on your photo. This will automatically adjust the shape of your crop to match up with your photograph.

Pro Tip: All of our crops use a grid layout, so you can easily harness the power of the rule of thirds to achieve perfect composition.

Crop Control

To change the Width and Height of your crop, click the up and down arrows (for faster adjustments, click the arrow and drag up to rapidly increase or down to quickly decrease) to adjust on a pixel-by-pixel basis, or click on the current pixel number and type in a new amount. Once you do, your crop will automatically adjust. For your final step, click Apply and save to wherever is most convenient for you.
