Cropping with Picasa

When we take pictures and view them through our view finder or live view, the picture taken may not necessary be the exact framing that we had in mind.  Furthermore, we may want to position certain parts of the image or crop out unwanted distractions in the image.


The photo above had the lighting distraction at the bottom and we just wanted to have the emphasis of the TWINCAM word and some engine components to reflect it. We use the crop icon to adjust our image appropriately.

picasa-croppedWe also tried to crop it where the main focus is on the 1/3 rule, which is at the bottom 1/3 of the picture.  Hope that this short and basic guide was useful to some.
