Cropping and Resizing

For a finishing touch, you may want to crop or resize your photo. There are two ways to change the size of your photo: cropping and resizing. Cropping cuts away some of the original photo. You lose some of the data, but the quality of the image doesn’t change. Resizing keeps all of the areas that appeared in the original photo, but quality can be noticeably degraded.

Cropping

The most common reason for cropping a photo is to improve its composition. Take, for example, the photo in Figure 8.31.
