It is located in the Main toolbar.

Crop ratio

For the moment ratio are : Free, Original ratio, 1x1, 1x2, 4x3, 16x9, 16x10, A4 paper.

Fit allows readjusting the frame based on the width or height of the drawing, while preserving the previously defined ratio.


Crop size

Size elements Description
Link on If the link icon is active, the ratio will be maintained. So, if one value is entered, the other will be calculated automatically.
Link off If the link icon is not active, then width or height value can be entered independently.
W Width value
H Height value
Flip horizontal Flip horizontally
Flip vertical Flip vertically


To flip a drawing, it's a reversed value. For example, if my drawing is 2000px wide, I would enter the value -2000px to flip it. But for a quicker way, there are these buttons seen above.


Crop position

The x and y coordinates of the frame can be directly entered here.

The square divided into 9 parts represents the canvas and determines current coordinates (top-left, center of the drawing, bottom-right, etc.). The pivot point and the frame will automatically snap to these coordinates.


Crop rotation

Rotation elements Description
Crop angle Angle value
Crop snap Snap angle On/Off and a value which provides a constraint for rotation
