Crop a clip

Applies to

Microsoft Office 2003 Editions

Microsoft Office XP and earlier

Let's say you have a clip or photograph that you want to use in a document, but there are parts of the art that you want to remove. This is called cropping. Cropping is helpful when you're trying to call attention to a certain area of an image, while omitting any unnecessary detail.

For example, imagine that you are using this photo, but you want to get rid of most of the background and focus on the pushpins (as suggested by the version on the right).
