Cropping an image in Linux using GIMP

Cropping an image is a pretty basic feature in image editing software. Its pretty easy to do in Windows. You can even use Paint to do it in Windows. But I had a tough time doing it on Ubuntu. But its pretty easy to do it on GIMP. Here's how.

1. Open the image you want to crop on GIMP.

2. In the Toolbox, you have to look for the Crop Tool.

3. Use the Crop Tool to select the area you want to crop and click on the small rectangular box within the selected area to crop.

  4. You get the cropped image. Use Ctrl+S to save the image. Use Ctrl+Q to quit GIMP.
