You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to crop an image using "Crop Tool" in GIMP in Windows 7.
You should have the program open and an image ready to use. You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that. There is a VisiHow video on using "Crop to Selection"
First, click one of your selection tools in "Toolbox". You can click either "Rectangle Select Tool" or "Ellipse Select Tool".
Then, click and drag the cursor to select the area that you want to crop. You can hold the "Shift" key on the keyboard if you want to select with the square or circle. A dotted line will appear around the marked area when you let go of the mouse button.
Next, double-click the "Crop Tool" in "Toolbox". After you select the "Crop Tool", "Tool Options" will change.
You can place the checkmark in one of the "Tool Option" boxes if you need to use the options. You can also change the width and height of your cropped image in the "Fixed" drop-down menu.
After that, you can manually change the ratio, position, and size, and the unit in the grey box to the right.
You can check the "Highlight" option to add different types of guides.
Click within the selected area of your canvas to crop the image.
