Multiple Cropping Options

For your convenience and quick use of the app, we offer a broad range of options to adjust the cropping area.

You can:

set the cropping borders manually,

choose one of the fixed aspect ratios from the list,

change the selected ratio of width to height using your keyboard.

If you choose one of the fixed aspect ratios, you can resize and reposition the cropping area however you want. But the ratio of width to height will be locked.

Our list contains both standard aspect ratios (1:1, 4:3, 16:9, etc.) and popular dimensions for social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn.

If you choose an option with the specified size in pixels, for example, "Instagram Post 1080 × 1080", then your cropped copies are going to be reduced or enlarged to be 1080 x 1080 pixels.

Horizon Line Adjustment

With Watermarkly app, you can not only crop your photos fast and easily but also rotate your whole image to any angle. This feature can be especially useful if you need to fix a crooked horizon.

To adjust the angle of your image, use the slider next to the list of crop sizes at the top of the screen. By moving it from one side to the other you will easily get the desired result. Don’t worry, the quality of your photos will not be affected.

The combination of cropping and rotation features allows you to edit your images quickly and efficiently at the same stage in one app.

Image rotation might be useful for enhancing a wide variety of photos. After all, it allows you to not only straighten the horizon but also drastically change the camera angle. Unfortunately, you cannot rotate a photo to 180 degrees, but you still have the chance to fix mistakes that you made during the shooting.

How To Crop Images Using Our App:

To get started, you need to drag your photos into the app or click on «Select images», then a pop-up window will appear. You can upload your photos from your computer, Google Drive, Google Photos, or DropBox.

Select Images

Watermarkly supports JPEG, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP image formats. Please note, that if you don’t have enough free memory space on your computer or phone, you won’t be able to download your cropped copies, since they can be of any size.

If you choose «From My Computer», find the necessary folder in the dialog window and pick the images you want to crop. To select all photos in a folder, press Ctrl + A on Windows or Cmd + A on Mac.

If you choose one of these options - «from Google Drive», «from Google Photos» or «from DropBox» - a dialog box will appear and the app will ask you to grant access to your cloud storage. Click on «Allow Access». This will open a new window for choosing images. If you want to select multiple photos, pick them while holding the Shift key. To proceed click on the «Select» button.


If you want to add more images, click on «Add photo». If you want to remove all the current images from the app and upload different ones, click on «Clear».

To adjust the cropping area, use the «Select Crop Size» drop-down menu at the top of the app. Click on it. You will see the following options.

Freeform (X:Y)

This option allows you to manually adjust the cropping area using the cursor if you are on a computer or your finger if you are on a mobile device. Simply drag the blue borders in any direction until you are happy with the result. Anything outside the blue borders will be cropped out.

The aspect ratio here is not fixed, so there are no limitations. You can freely change the cropping area and choose any ratio of height to width you want.


Fixed Aspect Ratios

These options include locked aspect ratios of your cropping area.

In this case, the absolute size in pixels is irrelevant. Instead, you select the ratio of your cropping area’s width to its height. Our app offers these options: 1:1, 3:2, 4:3, 16:9, 2:3, 3:1, 2:1, 1:2. If you need a ratio that is not on the list, click into the selection box and type in, for example, 4:5.

You can make the cropping area bigger or smaller, or move it to any other location within the image. But the selected aspect ratio will be locked: if you make the cropping area wider, its height will increase automatically as well.

If you have a batch of photos, you can set one ratio option for all images or select different ratios for each photo separately.


Social Media Dimensions

This part of the list contains the most popular dimensions for social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn.

Unlike standard aspect ratios, these options affect not only the ratio of width to height but also the size in pixels. The resolution of your cropped copies will be changed automatically according to the option of your choice. For example, if you select «Instagram Story 1080 × 1920», your cropped image will be 1080 pixels wide and 1920 pixels high.

You can also manually change the size of your cropping area by entering your preferred width and height in pixels into the selection box. For example, you can enter 1200 × 1900.


Straighten Your Horizon

To the right from the «Select Crop Size» box, you will see a blue slider that allows you to rotate your image.

It is initially set to 0°, but you can set any angle from -7 ° to 7 °. Depending on which side you want to tilt your photo to, move the blue circle to the left or right.


Once you are done with adjusting your cropping area and making all the necessary changes, click on «Crop Photo». This will take you to the Output Settings. Click on «JPEG Quality» to set the quality of the cropped images. You can choose one of 4 options: Maximum, Excellent, Good, and Average.

Click on «Crop Photos»to start the cropping process. Once the cropped photos are ready, the app will offer you to "Download All" images to your computer or upload directly to Google Photos or Dropbox.
