    Great tutorial, Gary, as always!

    Question: The crops in Photos always seem to be only some form of square or rectangle, but no circle. Is it possible to make a circular crop in Photos? I know Preview can do it, but I have not found how to do it in Photos.

    Todd: No, you can't have an image file that is not rectangular. Circular images and the like would be rectangular images with the area outside of the shape simply transparent. You can do that with most image editing apps. It is always a rectangle, but with some transparent pixels.

    Can you explain what the difference is between 4 X 3 and 16 X 9. Both seem to me to be the same mathematical proportion

    Frank: 4x3 ad 16x9 are not the same. 4x3 would be the same as 12x9, not 16x9.
