Getting Started in GIMP: How to Crop
Welcome to the first article in my Photography Editing in GIMP series! This first tutorial is meant both to introduce you to GIMP, if you are not already familiar with the program, as well as to reinforce the importance of cropping. Please click to read my introduction to the free software GIMP that will be used in all of my photo-editing tutorials.
The How to Crop in GIMP tutorial will explain how you can take a photo from this:
Step 1: Open up the file in GIMP.
Step 2: Click on the "Crop" tool in the toolbar. It looks like a picture of a scalpel. Then, click and drag a rectangle around the area that you want to keep.
Step 3: Hit the Enter key on your keyboard. Enjoy your newly cropped photo!
Stay tuned for the next article, when I explain how to control color saturation in GIMP!
