It’s a candid shot! Rarely does the whale watching trip get this close to an actual whale! You pull out your iPhone and quickly snap a photo! Before this picture goes out to the world on Facebook let’s take a look at it. There’s the amazing whale, the beautiful ocean, the pretty sky, oh yes, and that little sea sick kid throwing up over the railing! It’s time to crop!

Super Crop is very easy to use! Simplifying this app is the fact that there are only five buttons to choose from and four of them are self explanatory! Once you’ve selected the picture you’d like to edit it appears with pull down arrows in each corner that you just touch and drag creating the desired area you wish to crop. Or in this case crop off! Once you’ve made the desired changes to your picture hit the crop button and viola! you have a smiling whale and nothing else! If you like what you see just hit save and your newly edited photo is saved to your library! Your original picture also stays like it is in case you wanted to show that little kid later on! In no time at all you will become a photo cropping wizard!
With this app you are always in control! Once your picture is in the display area ready for editing, opposite corners will show double sided arrows which, as mentioned, are easily operated. As you slide the arrows up or down a ‘new’ area will be highlighted by a red frame and everything outside the area is darkened. Unlike the ‘Home’, ‘Crop’, ‘Rotate’, and ‘Save’ buttons, the ‘Options’ button takes you to a second screen that offers size and orientation choices. Each command is highlighted in blue when selected.
Super Crop is like a mini photo studio! As your picture is in edit mode you may choose aspect ratios such as 4 x 6, 5 x 7, and 8 x 10, great for standard print sizes, passports, etc. Also while in cropping mode the frame’s resolution is displayed. You also have the option of choosing landscape or portrait orientation and if needed you can rotate the picture. Regardless of your editing this app maintains maximum resolution for great quality pictures!
