Cropping Images

Many times when you place an image, you don't want the entire image to be displayed. Every shape in InDesign can serve as a frame, and when you place an image, the image is placed inside a frame, regardless of whether you've drawn a frame on the page or not.

To crop an image, or make the frame smaller, click on the frame with the Selection tool. You will see the object's bounding box, the frame that shows its dimensions. Eight handles appear around the bounding box. Click a handle and drag to resize the frame, hiding part of the image (see Figure 28.7). You can also use the Position tool to drag a handle after a frame has been selected.
