Crop a picture

You can crop a picture directly in Microsoft Expression Web. After you crop a picture, you aren't prompted to save the edited picture until you save the page. At that time, the Save Embedded Files dialog box lets you choose to either overwrite the original file or save the edited picture to a new file.

  1. In your web page, click the picture.

  2. On the Pictures toolbar, click Crop Cc295323.07b43bdf-af13-4140-8675-ec12560654f0(en-us,Expression.40).bmp.

  3. Drag the handles of the cropping box to resize and include the part of the picture that you want to keep.
