Simpler way to Crop Photos

There should really be a tool to crop photos by selection (maybe by double clicking on it and using the control points) but it took me a while just to figure out that i have to mask by shape just to crop a photo.

We’ve begun working on an easier way to crop your images without using an image mask and will be releasing this in an upcoming release!

    I think the way it is working now is very good, the only thing i can think of is that you can't edit the shape vector points if you add a picture to the shape. I would love an option to do that from the right-click option menu.

    When is this basic feature coming? Now masking sometimes work, but mostly not.

    I can't emphasize this enough. Framing photos is such a pain currently. Look at InDesign for filling frame options, scaling etc.

    I paste many different pictures into XD and cropping is terrible. The only work around is to mask which is very clunky.

    Please can we have cropping of images:( Especially useful for different images on one board.

  • Matza commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please like InDesign!!! Drag and Drop an image and then it's simply a frame which ich can resize with the control points at the corners. The image-parts outside still existing, that I can do changes afterwards! So easy! No masking-horror please!!!
    And additional, the automatic filling-option of the image should be with the declaration if the image will be cropped left, right, top, bottom or centered!!

    Cutting of pictures - standard picture mode (scaling, cutting, etc.)
    If different screens are attached to each other enable overlaying of designs (e.g. pictures) now it has to be manually added for a multi view port site. currently picture positioned in screen 1 is not visible in screen 2

    We should be able to shift an image within its container. I find it a bit odd that this feature is not yet built in. Right now, if I want to control the crop on an image, I have to use Photoshop, save out the image and place it in to XD. Albeit not the end of the world, it is an inconvenience. Sketch offers this feature – just sayin'!

    Use InDesigns crop, resize and masking ability, works like a charm :)

    Often when designing in UXD I am modifying an existing product screenshot. It would be great if I could 'split' a given image by either horizontal or vertical axis so I could shift the legacy design apart to accommodate the new elements. Currently I have to take two different screenshots and manually align/crop them into position. This is basically a workflow optimization for working with existing product designs.
