We’re all familiar with the cropping tool in our image editing programs. Unfortunately, it is one of the most widely used editing tools, mainly because it’s easy to forget to frame pictures before snapping the shutter. Yes, it is easy to crop images to get rid of ugly background extras, like empty water bottles, and focus only on the part we want. Or sometimes we do some heavy-duty cropping to zero-in on a subject’s face. But if you are planning on printing your images or enlarging them, you’ll get a sharper end result if you do a little planning before you take your shot.
