Crop Media

When canvas space is at a premium, show more of what’s important by using crop to hide unwanted parts of a video or image.

Enable crop mode by clicking on the crop button just above the canvas. A thin blue border appears around the selected media. Click and drag the handles of the blue border to crop the video or image.

When you’re finished, click the arrow button located next to the crop button to return to the normal “edit mode.”
