Crop an Image Using Preview

What do you use to crop an image in Mac OSX? There are plenty of powerful image editing tools for Mac OSX, some free, some ridiculously expensive.

Included with every Apple Macintosh since 2002, iPhoto has a modest set of photo editing options, such as red-eye removal and adjustment of exposure, contrast, and saturation. Effects (sepia, matte, black and white, etc.) can also be added with one click. It also has an easy-to-use crop tool.

The drawback is that you need to add a photo into your iPhoto library to be able to edit pictures. If you’re using powerful image editing tools like Adobe Photoshop, Gimp, Seashore, and Acorn, the drawback is that they may take a while to load. If you merely need a quick fix for cropping a photo, there has to be a quicker way, right?

You can use Prevew to crop photo.

Good thing there’s another option. And it only requires an app that already comes free and preinstalled in every Mac. The app we’re talking about here is Preview. Yup, Preview, that ever reliable photo and PDF viewer for Mac OSX can also be used to crop just about any type of image it can open.

See how after the jump.
