Chapter 5. Working with Web Page Graphics > Cropping and Resizing Graphics

Cropping and Resizing Graphics

Cropping is the process of framing a portion of a photo and eliminating any unnecessary visual elements. If, for example, you have a photo that is not centered properly, you can crop out the side to center it. You can also resize graphics, using both numerical and graphic-direct techniques. However, if you enlarge a graphic to much, you lose image details. After you resize a graphic, the Picture Actions button appears, where you have the option to retain the picture file's original size, but tell the browser to use the new size, or to change the picture's physical size to the new size, known as resampling. The next time you save the page, FrontPage prompts you to save the picture at the new size.

Crop a Graphic

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Select the graphic you want to crop.

Resize handles appear on the graphic and the Pictures toolbar opens.

Click the Crop button on the Pictures toolbar.

A cropping box appears inside the graphic.

Drag a resize handle on the cropping box to include the part of the graphic that you want to keep.

Click the Crop button on the Pictures toolbar again to eliminate the area outside of the cropping box.
