Crop Page Margins or Areas

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The cropping features in TIFF Image Printer are used to crop, or cut away, the outer parts of the page, and keep the inner area. While most often associated with editing photos, cropping also works to remove unwanted areas of your printed pages.

There are methods available that you can use to crop images or pages:

Page Margins

Page Areas or Regions.

A side effect of cropping can be a change in outputted page size. If you need to remove the margins, and also keep the original page size, see also Copy Page Contents to a New Page Size.

All cropping settings are controlled through the profile.
