Cropping Pictures in Mac Photos

Learn how to crop your pictures in the Mac Photos app. You can drag the edges to redefine the cropping area and then reposition the picture inside the new area. You can also rotate or auto-rotate the image and the crop will adjust automatically to not leave any blank space in the corners. Cropping is non-destructive, so you can always revert to the original photo or export it.

    Obviously this is about Photos 3.0. That appears to be part of OS-High Sierra. I have an older Mac that cannot run OS-HS -- only Sierra (10.12.6 currently). It has Photos 2.0 -- which does not have the same editing features. Do you know if it's possible to upgrade to 3.0 on OS-Sierra? (My current work-around is to use GIMP as my photo editor -- which has its challenges). Thanks.

    You need High Sierra to have Photos 3.0. But Photos 2.0 has similar editing tools, though they look different. I'm pretty sure the cropping features are comparable, even if some of the lighting adjustments are new to Photos 3.0.

    I have been using most of the cropping tools but this video showed me other things that I will be using in the future. Thank you for a great.
