Task 3 How to Crop an Image

Cropping an image involves cutting an image down to a specific square or rectangular section, excluding all other unwanted areas. You can crop an image to fit a specific dimension or to enhance its composition. Sometimes cropping involves trimming away a little detail around the edges. At other times, cropping can isolate a small component of an image and discard everything else. Cropping an image does not change the resolution or image quality; it only shrinks the canvas size as unwanted areas are eliminated.

1. Open the Image
