How do you crop using paint.net?

Recommended Posts

2 things.

1. This belongs in General Questions & Discussion.

2. Select a section and press the crop button.

Where's the Crop tool?

Right under your nose, so to speak. Simply select the area you want to crop by using one of the selection tools. You can then move, resize, or even rotate the selection by using the Move Selection tool (2nd row, 2nd column). Finally, click on Crop to Selection in the Image menu (or press Ctrl + Shift + X, or use the button in the toolbar). If you're interested in selecting, say, a 4 inch by 6 inch area of the image, make sure the "Units" are set to inches (in the toolbar, or in the View -> Units menu), and then watch the statusbar (lower left in the main window) to see how large a selection is while you are drawing it.
