You can use Picasa’s crop feature to remove unwanted parts of any photo. Cropping can also be used to improve the composition of a photo.

To crop a photo, first open it in the editing window by double-clicking on it in the Lightbox, then select the Basic Fixes tab and click on the Crop button.

#

You can then select from preset dimensions, or you can click on Manual.

#

If you select Manual, you can drag and drop in your image to create a bounding box. The parts of your image that will be cropped will be grayed out.

#

Once you have drawn your bounding box, you can click on Preview to see a preview of the cropped image. If you are happy with the result, click on Apply to perform the crop.
