This is a standard way of cropping pictures. Click on a place where you
want to be the starting corner and drag mouse pointer diagonally until
you completely enclose the crop area. You can check the cropped picture
size in W (width) and H (height) textboxes. After you set the crop area
you can also move it around. If you click outside the crop area you
will cancel the selection.
This option allows you to set the cropped picture size you need in
advance. First type in width and height values for the crop area you
need in textboxes W and H respectively. Then click on the picture to
position the crop area. The place where you click will be the position
of crop area's top-left corner.
We can describe this option best as a restricted free style cropping.
You will be able to choose one of three predefined standard aspects
(3:2, 4:3, 16:9) or choose custom aspect option and type in your own
proportion values in unnamed textboxes just right of the aspect
drop-list. After that when you start selecting crop area it will expand
strictly to conform to the chosen aspect.

Output file options
For destination folder you can choose a custom folder (by default the
program will use "...\My Documents\My Pictures\Photo Gadget Pro") or
same as source folder (in other words the folder where the
picture's original file is stored).
If you choose new file name option then the
take the original picture's file name and add a suffix
"_cropped" to it.
For example, if the original picture's file name was "London panorama
12.jpg" the program will save the cropped version as
"London panorama 12_cropped.jpg". However, if you choose the same as
original option, then there will be no change in the original picture's
file name. In that case if the cropped version is
going to be saved to a folder that also happens to be the one where the
original picture file is stored then the original picture file will be
overwritten and lost.
Four output picture qualities are available for JPG files: low (highest
compression), medium, high and best (lowest compression).
