Some examples of applying "Crop Pictures"


Example 1: Photo wall slide


Features used: "Crop Pictures" + "Matrix Layout"


Step 1: Batch cropping 

  • Click [Ctrl + A] to select all the pictures need to be edited 

  • Enter the parameters you want in the "Crop Pictures" interface, or select "Use Last Shape Size"  


Step 2: Matrix Layout 

Method 1 

Directly change the parameters of horizontal and vertical spacing. It is highly customizable, allowing you to set the value of image spacing as you want. 



When setting the horizontal and vertical spacing, the length and width of the shape are 100 by default. 

Horizontal spacing 

It is the spacing between the "upper left corner" of the first shape and the "upper left corner" of the second shape. When the spacing is 100, the distance between the two shapes is 0. 


Vertical spacing 

It is the spacing between the "top" of the first shape and the "top" of the second shape. When the spacing is 100, the distance between the two shapes is 0. 



Method 2 

Select “% of shape” in the drop-down menu of “Space Unit” in Matrix Layout, and then get 100% edge fitting with a snap. 



What if the area left of cropped picture is not what you want? 

Just select this picture, right-click, choose “crop” and adjust the picture. 


The result 



Example 2: Image Batch Cropping + Cropping into Shape + Matrix Layout 



Goal: Crop pictures into standard “diamonds” 


  • Batch cropping the pictures into square

  • Crop pictures into diamond


How to do

  • Click “Ctrl + A” to select all the pictures that need to be cropped, click Format >> Edit Shape >> Change Shape, then choose [diamond] 


Target effect 

Two rows of diamonds. Arranged in adsorption style. 


Choose [% of shape] of the Space Unit in the Matrix Layout and adjust. 



You can choose the [% of shape] of the Space Unit to adjust the distance between pictures to 0 (edge-to-edge layout). 



Example 3: Matrix Layout + Deviation Angle 

The background pattern used in the example is from the Transparent Textures, a seamless background texture website. You can click [Ultra Practical Editable Variety Textured Website Transparent Textures]. 


This mainly used the “Deviation Angle” in “Matrix Layout’. 



Example 4: Matrix Layout + Rotation 

After clicking the Matrix Layout, you can also try to combine pictures and rotate. 


Use the Matrix Layout to copy and arrange rectangles. 


Overall rotation after arrangement 


Target layout effect 


The pictures filled in the rotated shapes will also be rotated. This is not the effect we want. 

We need to turn the rotated shapes back 

Insert a shape on the bottom layer to “split” with the target shape 


  • You cannot apply Boolean to the combined shapes. You need to ungroup it before you apply [split]. 

  • When apply [Boolean], you can click what you want to reserve it. 



Example 5: Matrix Layout 


Use “rectangle’ as a unit to apply matrix layout 

Merge some rectangles 

You can create thousands of layouts
