How to Crop A Photo on iPhone/iPad in iOS 8 Photo App

They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and that is why you need to crop certain images. Sometimes you might want to remove extra spaces from the image or highlight a specific feature of it. In any case, cropping comes in as a handy tool, as it allows you to measure the dimensions or enlarge the required selection.

There are many numerous third-party apps available to help you with editing. However, in iOS 7 and iOS 8, iPhone and iPad have a built-in cropping feature, which can prove to be very helpful.
