What's the difference between cropping and resizing?

Cropping is when you cut off part of an image to achieve a new size or shape. Resizing maintains the entire image and simply changes the size. In Shutterstock Editor, we offer useful presets to change the size and shape of images as well as freeform crop of secondary images. Our free image resizer can also help you resize images and photos in 3 clicks. Try the resizer today!
