Why to Crop Photographs for Page Layout


It is seldom that you'll find a photograph that is ready to use in your page layout without some sort of editing. One basic way to modify photos is to crop them -- remove some part of the image. Cropping changes the appearance of photographs and clip art in order to better fit the layout, make a statement, or improve the overall appearance of the subject matter.
