Clipping

Top  Previous  Next

Clipping allows you trim off parts of an image so you can focus on specific parts of an image. It also allows you to eliminate margins, borders or other wasted space. To clip an image, select the “Resize Page” on the left side of the screen. Here is a detailed description of the process of clipping an image;

 

The Selection Box. To select an area for clipping, you simply click on the Image and while holding the mouse button down, drag it across the image. A “Selection Box” will appear that follows the cursor as long as the button is held down. Since the image may be larger than the screen, dragging the box past the edge the image will cause the window to scroll automatically.

 

Moving and Resizing The Box. Once you have created a box, you can resize it by clicking and dragging the small squares in the corners of the Selection Box. If you click and drag in the interior of the box, you can move the box to a new position.

 

Clipping. Once you have selected a portion of the image you can remove or clip everything outside the box by pressing the “Clip” button at the top of the page.
