How to cut a picture
Step 1. Install Movavi’s image cutter
Download the PC or Mac version of the app from our website. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the picture trimmer.
Step 2. Add your photo
Click Browse for Images to open the photo you want to edit or simply drag-and-drop it into the working area.
Step 3. Crop the image
After the image has been added, open the Crop and Rotate tab. The dotted-line frame shows the area of the pic that will be cropped. If you need to change the size of the frame, simply drag its edges. When you’ve set the frame area to what you need, click Apply to see the result. If you are not satisfied with the way your image looks after cropping, simply click the Revert Changes button and try again.
Step 4. Save the cropped image
To save the final result, click the Save icon in the top right-hand corner of the program. In the opened window, specify the destination folder, file name, and format. You can save your picture in JPEG, PNG, TIFF, BMP, or any other popular image format.
Now you see how easy it is to learn how to cut photos on a PC or Mac.
How to remove an image background
Step 1. Install software
Open the downloaded file and start the installation process.
Step 2. Add the image to the program
Launch the app. Click the Browse for Images button and choose the image to upload, or simply drag your photo into the working area.
Step 3. Delete the background
Click Change Background on the right side of the window. First, you need to distinguish between the foreground and the background in the picture. You can do this automatically just by clicking Auto Select. For manual selection, use the Foreground Brush to highlight what should be kept in the picture. Then, with the help of the Background Brush, mark the background. Another way to manually select an object is to use the Lasso tool. If you are not satisfied with your selection, you can always clear your highlights with the Selection Eraser tool. When the mark-up is done, click Next Step.
Use the Object Selection brush to make the outline more precise and the Background Selection brush to delete any unwanted areas that remain after the last step. Use the Hair Selection tool to refine smaller details in the picture. Once you’re done, click Next Step again.
Now the background is transparent with the foreground object remaining in place. To replace the background with a different photo, click Add Image. In the new window, click Upload to choose a photo from your computer or pick a background from our collection. Alternatively, you can choose to fill the background with a solid color from the palette. When everything is ready, click Apply.
Step 4. Save the result
Click the Save icon, and in the opened window, give the new file a name, choose the desired format (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, BMP, etc.), and set the destination folder. Note that, if you want to keep the background transparent, you should save your image in a format that supports transparency such as PNG or TIFF.
