Step-by-step Instruction: How to Crop Images Online

Our tool is user-friendly and convenient. Run the application in a browser on a computer or smartphone.

The app works great on IOS and Android devices. Here you can crop your images in no time – pictures will be quickly uploaded onto the website, and it’ll take only a couple of minutes to choose and edit the cropping area.

Step 1: Open the app and upload photos.

You have two options:

Upload images from a folder on a laptop/computer. You can drag and drop your photos directly from a folder. Alternatively, you can click on “Select Images”. This will open a new window, where you can pick your source folder and photos that you want to crop. If you need to process all photos in the folder, select them with the cursor or use the keyboard shortcuts. On Windows computers, this is Ctrl+A. On a Mac, Command+A.

Upload from DropBox, Google Drive, or Google Photos. When you select this option, you need to give our application access to your cloud storage. Then select the necessary images.

Click on “Add images“ if you want to add more photos. The “Clear images“ button allows you to delete all the uploaded images. It is also possible to remove a single image, if you changed your mind and don’t want to crop it anymore. To do this, hover your cursor over a photo and click on the bucket icon.

Step 2: Choose and edit the cropping area.

We offer several cropping options.

Manually-set cropping area. Choose the shape: square or circle. Adjust the blue borders as you see fit. The aspect ratio isn’t locked. You can turn a square into a rectangle. Make a circle as big or as small as you want.

There are absolutely no limits! As soon as you choose a shape, the cropping area will show up on the first image in the batch. It is marked with the blue line. Everything outside will be cropped out. You can resize and move the cropping area to a different place. Its aspect ratio can be changed. You can edit it however you want to achieve the desired results.

You can also write the necessary values for how you want your image to be cropped. Type them into the menu box if you know what height and width you need. Dimensions in pixels should be written like this – “1800:900”. You can also set the aspect ratio like this – “3:5”.

Locked aspect ratios. Our app includes a set of templates with various locked aspect ratios. They will surely make your job much easier. All you have to do is pick the option that suits your needs.

Don’t worry! This option doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to make any alterations. If you choose one of the fixed aspect ratios, the app will still allow you to change the size and location of the cropping area. Please, keep in mind that the ratio of height to width will be locked. It means, that as soon as you make the image wider, its height will also change automatically.

Popular dimensions for various social media. Visual Watermark offers templates with popular dimensions for some social networks. In other words, you can prepare your images for posting online in just a couple of clicks. Our app includes templates for:

  • Instagram: stories and different types of posts;
  • Facebook: posts, page, event, and profile covers;
  • Youtube: channel art and thumbnail;
  • LinkedIn: profile photo and blog post;
  • Twitter: header and post.
image crop for social media

The beauty of our social media templates is that they speed up your workflow as well as ensure that your photos look great. You see, social networks usually compress all uploaded images to be a certain size.

For example, if you upload an image of 5000x4000px, Instagram will automatically compress your photo to 1350x1080px. This will result in your image looking somewhat blurry and of poor quality. That’s not good, is it? To make sure that your image looks sharp and crisp, you need to crop and resize it to 1350x1080px, then upload it to Instagram. If you choose one of our social media templates, your cropped copies will have the necessary dimensions that your social media platform requires.

In our app you can crop a batch of photos using one and the same template or choose different templates for each image separately.

Step 3: Export your images.

Click the “Crop images” button once you are finished with editing. The Export settings will show up. Here you can go to the “Preview” section and see what your cropped copies will look like.

In the Export settings you can choose a new file format:

For images cropped in the form of a circle: PNG or WEBP.

For images cropped in the form of a square or fixed proportions: JPEG (standard or maximum quality), PNG, WEBP. Your cropped copies can also be exported as compressed JPEGs. If you aren’t sure what you need, the short descriptions next to each option will help you make the right choice.

In the export settings you will find another feature: Add watermark to photo.

You can protect your cropped images with a watermark. To do this, check the box next to “Watermark images.” Choose a watermark from previously used templates (if you’ve worked in Visual Watermark before) or create one from scratch. Designing a watermark is as simple as mastering our image cropper.
