There are many reasons why you should consider cropping images that are added to the slideshow or generally around your website including:

  • Improving the overall compostion of the image
  • Allowing the focus to be on the main subject within the image
  • Allowing you to remove distracting elements
  • Allowing you to change the orentation of the image
