Crop Your Images for Trim, Precise Compositions

Try our easy-to-use cropping tools to cut any photo down to size to balance your designs or beautifully reframe your photography.

Start your project with one of our awesome design grids

Cropping doesn’t need to be a headache ever again! We offer plenty of tools to make sure you have perfectly cropped photos every time. If you want your design to have many photos arranged together, try starting a new project with a design grid. Click on the “Grids” icon in the search pane, then choose one of our many grid layouts. Next, drag and drop images into the empty grid boxes and we’ll crop them for you. No fuss, no muss.

Try frames to crop your photos in all kinds of fun shapes

Want to try some fancy cropping with heart shapes, curves, and curly Q’s? With Canva you can create cute scrapbook layouts with frames! Simply click “Frames” in the search pane and scroll past the conventional, rectangular frames to reveal our wide selection of artful frames, ready for your photos. Add the frame to your design, drag a photo inside, and we’ll crop it just right for your frame, no matter the size or shape.

Tweak every cropped image with our cropping tool

A great artist isn’t done until every brush stroke is placed just so. Even when you use design grids or frames, Canva puts you in charge: to manually adjust the cropping of any photo, select the box and click “Crop.” Then scale and tweak your image until you get the most out of the photo. You can even try cropping the same photo in different ways to give your design a mosaic feel.
