How to crop photos in paint.net I cannot find any tool for that

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to crop a photo in paint.net   Actually I have two photos and need to cut them apart.  I also have photos on my camera which I can put onto my computer but not sure how to get them into paint.net  If anyone can point me in those two items I'd appreciate it!

First off, the Tutorials section of the forum is for sharing tutorials you've written. Questions go in the Discussion & Questions forum. I've moved this there for you, but keep that in mind for next time.

As for your questions:

To crop, first use the :RectangleSelectTool: Rectangle Selection tool to select the area you want to keep, then go to Image > Crop to Selection

To open your images in Paint.NET, find them in Explorer, right-click and select Edit. Or, from within Paint.NET, go to File > Open and find them that way.
