How To Crop A Picture

One of the most used tools in image processing, the crop tool allows you to trim unwanted areas, resize your image, and fine-tune the structure of your image. By cropping an image, you get another chance to compose and structure the image. A thoughtful crop won't fix a bad picture, but it will strengthen a good one.

1. Install PaintShop Pro

To install PaintShop Pro photo editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

2. Select the Crop tool

On the Tools toolbar, choose the Crop tool . By default, the crop rectangle appears on the image, and the area outside the crop rectangle is shaded.

3. Pick an area to crop

Adjust the crop area size by dragging any of the handles or edges. To reposition the crop rectangle, place the cursor inside and drag.

You can use a preset crop size by choosing an option from the Presets drop-list on the floating toolbar for the Crop tool, or from the drop-list on the Tool Options palette.

If you want to use a composition guide, on the floating toolbar click the Composition Guide button (this button toggles the guide on and off), and choose a guide from the drop-list.

4. Apply

When you're ready to crop the image, click the Apply button on the Tool Options palette or on the floating toolbar for the Crop tool.
