Step 4: Crop like a pro

  • Now, select the crop icon. It’s usually represented by a square or rectangle.
  • Once you’ve done that, a border will appear around your image, and you’ll see the crop tool in action.
  • Drag those corners and edges to crop the image exactly how you’d like it.

  • Now in order to crop the photo in the different aspect ratio tap the border icon.
  • Then select whatever aspect ratio you’d like such as 1:1, 3:4, 9:16, or full.

 

Step 5: Play with perspective

  • Sometimes, a little change in perspective can make all the difference. Tap the perspective icon.
  • Now, decide whether you want to shift the perspective horizontally or vertically.
  • Then, hold and drag those lines below the image left or right to achieve the desired effect.

  • Once you’ve made all your changes, tap “Done.” Your changes are now saved.
  • If you’re not feeling it, tap “Cancel” to discard any edits.

 

Step 6: Rotate, rotate, rotate

  • Feeling a bit tilted? Tap the rotate icon (usually a circular arrow) to spin your image 90 degrees.
  • For precise adjustments, hold those lines below the image and slide them left or right to shift the rotation.

 

Step 7: Save or revert

  • If you accidentally went overboard, hit “Revert” to undo everything.
  • Finally, when you’re absolutely thrilled with your creation, tap “Save.”
