Is there an image crop tool available for elementary OS?

I usually use on-line image crop tool for that purpose, but that need internet connection. So I need image processing/crop tool/software for freya.

How can I install and use them on elementary OS

Photos (and its companion Photo Viewer) is installed by default and can crop images.

GIMP is a free graphic manipulation tool.


  1. From software center.

  2. You can also install it through the terminal, if you are comfortable doing that, by running this command:

    sudo apt-get install gimp
  3. For the latest version, with newer features, use a PPA as GIMP suggests:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp

You can use PImagizer to resize one by one, or use Converseen to resize many images.

You can install it by the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install converseen

resize more than one[![][3]]3
