There’s always a lot going on at Oktoberfest. And the same goes for your unique spin on the celebrations this year. Have no fear though, the Crop Tool is here to cut out all those extra distractions so it’s just you and your crew in the frame.

  • Go to Tools and select Crop 
  • Choose your preferred dimensions, or opt to customize the image size 
  • Drag a corner to adjust the size of the frame

Finish it off with a Filter

  • Go to your Filter Library
  • Scroll through to the Texture category and select the Rosy Filter
  • Use the toggle to adjust the intensity of the filter
