When it comes to baby photography, space is good. For the infant. Through no fault of their own, babies aren’t the most cooperative subjects, so the more room they have to play with the better. You, on the other hand, don’t need all that excess space. Thankfully, our Crop tool is here to help you cut it all out so all that’s left is a frame full of sweetness!

  • 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 
  • Move the frame to capture the exact area you want in your photo
