There could be all sorts of reasons why you would like to crop photos on your iPhone and iPad. Maybe you are not pleased with the actual size of the image or want to make it perfectly fit a frame.
The stock Photos app for iOS and iPadOS comes with a built-in editing tool that can let you automatically resize a photo. Besides, you can also get rid of the unwanted parts manually to ensure there is no blemish. You do not need any photo editing apps to rotate, crop, or straighten your photos.
However, the best part is that you can go back to the original size just in case the end result does not turn out as expected. Let’s see how this is done.
This is for the iPhone and iPad
Crop Your Photo
First, open the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad and navigate to the photo that you want to crop. In the top right-hand corner, tap the Edit button. Refer to below image:
Now, in the photo editing view, you will see the bottom toolbar. Tap the Crop button which looks like a box with arrows around it. See below image:
Next, you will see the image surrounded by a white frame. Swipe in from any edge to crop the image. You can do this from all corners. Just, lift your finger to see the cropped image. See following image:
Now, you can also crop the image using a specific aspect ratio if you need the photo to be a perfect square. Tap the Aspect Ratio button in the top toolbar which looks like overlapping boxes. Refer to below image:
Next, you can choose the Aspect Ratio (such as “4:3” or “16:9”) or switch between the Portrait and Landscape formats.
Even after selecting the Aspect Ratio, you can continue to crop the image. The difference is that now, the Aspect Ratio will be locked. If you do not want to use the Aspect Ratio feature, choose the Original option. See below image:
Now, if you are satisfied with the crop dimensions, tap the Done button in the bottom toolbar on iPhone. See following image:
Your photo will be cropped, and the result displayed on the screen. Refer to below image:
Do not forget that you can share the photo with your friends using the Share button in the bottom toolbar which looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it. See below image:
Undo Your Crop
All edits in the Photos app are non-destructive. This means that you can revert any photo to its original state.
First, open the photo in the Photos app. Tap the Edit button in the top right-hand corner. See following image:
Now, in the bottom right-hand corner on iPhone, tap the Revert button. Refer to below image:
Next, in the pop-up, choose the Revert to Original option. See below image:
Now, your photo will be back to its original form!
