Crop an image to trim its outer edges and show only the section of the image that you want.
In Figma, cropping images is a non-destructive process, so the cropped area does not get deleted. Rather, it is hidden. This means you can make changes to the crop by going through the cropping process again.
To crop an image:
- Select a layer with an image fill.
- Choose one of the following:
- Click in the toolbar.
- From the Fill section of the right sidebar, click the image thumbnail. Then, open the image mode dropdown and select Crop.
- Click and drag one of the 8 blue handles around the image to crop it. You can also:
- Reposition the image: Click and drag.
- Resize the image: Click and drag the edges of the image.
- Rotate the image or crop section: Hover on the outside of a corner until the rotate cursor appears. Then click and drag.
- Keep the current aspect ratio of the image or crop section: Hold ⌘ Command for Mac or Control for Windows while cropping or resizing.
- Crop or resize opposite sides of the image or crop section: Hold Option for Mac or Alt for Windows while dragging.
- Click anywhere on the canvas to apply the crop. You can also press Esc or Return.
Tip: To quickly crop an image, hold ⌘ Command for Mac or Control for Windows while clicking and dragging the corners of the image.
