Resize vs Crop: Which online tool do you need?

Use the Crop Tool to cut areas from the image

Try the Crop Tool to take areas out of your pic or video, remove unwanted bits, or to cut a square from a rectangle.

• Use the Resize Tool to shrink or expand an image

Try the resize image tools to transform your original image or video while scaling it down, or up (which decreases the quality).
