The mouse cursor becomes a cross-hair. Click and drag to select a 
rectangle within your image. 

Step 1
Move the cross-hair to the upper left corner of the area
Step 2
Click and hold the mouse button down to drag the rectangle shape to the lower right corner of the area to select.

Double-crop function
You may select up to two separate rectangles at a time. When you click Snapshot, both of those regions will be saved as separate image files. 

Step 1
After selecting a cropped area, press and hold the Ctrl (control) key on the computer keyboard and drag a second cropping area. 

This feature is handy if you have an open book under the camera and want to scan both pages at once. The cropped areas may be resized or moved by dragging the sizing squares or centres with your mouse. The Crop tool icon will be coloured blue and white when the Crop feature is selected.


Step 2
Deselect it by clicking the icon again.
