Tips and Tricks #07: Crop a Picture to Fit a Shape





Hello everyone,

Whether you're designing an adventurous photo collage, your company's brochure, or simply a team introduction for new hires, images always play a crucial role in making your presentation look interesting and interactive. 
 
To help spruce up your pictures and share memories with others, we introduce to you a simple and fun-to-use feature in Zoho Show:  Crop a picture to fit a shape.
 
How is this different from ordinary image cropping? 
'Cropping' modifies a rectangular image by adjusting the width and height of its frame. 'Cropping images to fit a shape' reframes the image to fit within a non-rectangular shape, such as a circle, star, or triangle. 
 
So, how do you crop a picture into a shape? 
1. Choose your picture to crop.
2. Click  Crop to Shape on the  FORMAT pane (to the right). 
Note that 'Crop to Shape' maintains the picture's aspect ratio, the height-to-width proportions. 
3. Choose a shape that works well for your image. 
4. Add a border to the shape to enhance its look. 
5. Apply more picture formatting styles (such as stroke color, shadow, or reflection).

  

Try out cropping your image with all kinds of interesting shapes, and get the best perspective of your image.
