How to Crop or Cut an Image in Microsoft Word?

Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
Do you know how to crop an image in Microsoft word? Lets assume that you have an image which contains 2 objects (in one picture) side by side, you want to insert it to your microsoft word document but actually you want to remove one of those objects so the final result will be only one object in one image. Yes, it is true that you can crop the image with a photo editor software before you insert it, but how if you don’t have any photo/picture editor installed in your computer? In the situation like this you can crop or cut a picture in Microsoft Office Word document (directly). Okay so this trick is simple but very useful and effective, especially if you don’t have a picture editor installed in your PC.

Below is a tutorial on how to crop a picture in Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010, just follow to these few necessary steps:

1. Insert your picture. Choose Insert tab – Picture from the ribbon menu. In the example below I use Samsung Monte picture, front and back view
The Format/Picture Tools tab will be activated (automatically)

2. From the Format tab, click Crop item menu.
