Gimp: Course For Beginners 7: How to Crop an Image

November 8, 2019


In this Gimp Workshop we will see two different
ways to crop an image. When we have opened gimp, we click on file
and then on open. Here we search for our image. In the preview pane we can see if we have
the right image. Click open. Then we click on view, zoom and fit image
in window to maximize the image in the window. In the toolbox we click on the crop tool. Now we can, by click and drag, make our cutout. By click and drag the handles and or the corners,
we can make corrections and when we click and drag inside the image, we can move the
whole cutout. Press enter or click in one of the corners
to apply. Another way of cropping an image is by using
the rectangle select tool. First we go to edit and click undo crop image. Now we activate the rectangle select tool. Then we click and drag out a selection. Here too, we can, by click and drag the handles
and or the corners, make corrections and when we click and drag inside the image, we can
move the whole selection. Press enter or click in one of the corners
to apply. Go to the menu bar, click image and then click crop to selection. To save our work, we go to file. Here we can click overwrite, so we overwrite
our existing image, or we can click export as, and export the cropped image under a new
name to whatever folder we like. I hope this helps, please give it a like,
subscribe and leave a nice comment to support my channel. Thank you for watching.
