Hello, and welcome to Creative Nerds. In this Illustrator tutorial we will be sharing with you how you can crop images using Illustrator via the hidden away illustrator crop tool.

Tutorial Details:

  • Program: Photoshop
  • Time estimation: Under 2 minutes

So firstly, you want to start off by selecting the image by double-clicking on it, and then heading over to Object and selecting the option, Crop Image. Then, we’re gonna drag in anchor points from the corner until we’re happy with the crop selection. Once we’re happy with it, we’re simply going to select Enter, and then that becomes our cropped image.
