Want to Crop a Photo on Your iPhone in iOS 7 Quickly? Here’s How to do it:

Sometimes you click a picture to share with your friends but you want to edit the image: crop out the unnecessary parts to send just the main part of the image. iPhone’s stock Photo app comes built-in with the ability to crop image (and do more edits).

You don’t have to download a third-party app just to crop a photo you want to share. Here’s how to crop photos in iOS 7 and save them to the camera roll:

There’s something you should note before you crop a photo. When you crop a photo from your camera roll (or any album), it replaces the original one with the cropped one. It doesn’t create a copy of the original one and work on it. So you have to backup or create a copy of the photo before cropping it. (You can do this by emailing the photo to yourself).

#1. Cropping a photo in iOS 7:

  • Open the Photos app
  • Pick the photo you want to crop
  • Tap on Edit
  • Tap on the crop icon (bottom-right)

Cropping a photo in iOS 7

  • You can drag the corners of the crop-window to assign the crop-size.
  • If you want to move the crop area, just drag the photo into the highlighted crop area.
  • You can also use the Aspect to get a predefined aspect-ratio for the crop-area. (16:9 being my favorite for landscape photos)

You’ll notice that the original image is replaced with the cropped one. You can now share this image with your friends on Whatsapp, iMessage, Facebook etc.

#2. But what if I want to keep the original?

This one’s a little tricky but actually, easy to do if you have iCloud photo streams enabled.

  • Open the Photos app

  • Tap the ‘share’ icon. Tap Next

Keep Original Photo and Crop in iOS 7 on iPhone

  • Post the photo to your photo stream album. Now you’ve got a copy.

You can go to Photos → Shared → (the photo stream album) → (the photo you just posted) and follow the same procedure as in #1 to crop the photo. This time, when you tap Save, you will be asked if you want to save the cropped image in the camera roll. Tap Save in Camera Roll and you will find that both the original and the newly-created cropped image are in your camera roll.
