Cropping or resizing photos


Cropping or resizing your photos is a good way to focus on a particular area of the image, or to make it smaller or larger, depending on the needs for your design. Changing the size of a photo is easy to do.

The crop tool in Visme allows you to crop images that are already in the library or you can also upload your own image and then crop it within Visme.

How to Crop an image

First, select an image. If your image is locked, you will need to first unlock it in order to select it.Sometimes this is the case with templates or you may have locked the object preventing you from accidentally moving it while you work on your project.

Once your image has been selected, click on the crop option at the top left of the screen.

Begin cropping your image by moving and dragging one end of the white pointers:

By using the Coordinates Panel you can also type the new precise values of width, height and/or axis positions with your keyboard (To make incremental changes, use the up and down keys on your computer’s keyboard). From there, you can also adjust the angle of the elements by simply typing the angle value desired on the right of the “Arrow” icon.

Note: Coordinates Panel allows you to hard-set the dimension ratio of your elements by simply clicking on the “Lock” icon after resizing it. Doing this, you will keep the proportions of your object and keep the same ratio if you resize again.
