Cropping an Image

Often the only improvement a photo needs is a little cropping. When you crop a photo, you are removing some of the original edges from the photo. Cropping is useful to remove distracting items and to make the photo more artistic or pleasing. Cropping an image can sometimes turn an ordinary image into something special. No matter what the reason, if you are unhappy with the framing of your image, one solution is to use the GIMP Crop Tool.

Before cropping, make a copy of your image by saving or exporting the image (see Chapter 2 if you need a refresher). Decide before you crop how you are going to use this image (print or web site), then set the correct resolution. (See Chapter 3 for further information about setting the correct resolution for your image).
