The crop tool is used to cut off or remove a part of your icon or shape. This can be useful to emphasize a particular object, such as a macro-to-micro scale change, or simply to remove part of an object you don’t need. Both individual and grouped icons can be cropped.

There are 3 ways to crop your image

  1. Square crop
  2. Circle crop
  3. Custom shape crop

Cropping is also a reversible feature. You can reset any cropped icon to its original size.
