Does anyone have a suggestion for a program I can use to crop images?

If so, please also explain how the cropping feature is accessed within the program you recommend.

Thank you everyone!

gimp is a great graphics tool. It's extremely powerful and perhaps a bit of overkill, but you will learn to appreciate it if you take the time to learn it.

Cropping if straightforward: Once installed, open an image. On the toolbox select the "utility knife" icon. Select the cropped image and double click, then save.

gThumb Image viewer is about as quick and easy as you can get.

Right click on the image and select > Open With > gThumb Image Viewer.

Then click on Image and Crop. Drag the crop area, click crop and then apply.

I usually use Photoshop but when I want an image cropped or resized quickly, I just use gThumb.

My vote is for gThumb too... I still don't know why canonical decided to make F-spot or any other image viewer the default one, when gThumb is so robust. You can resize, crop, or alter in very few steps any image.

Of course, if you need something more potent, i would vote for gimp too...

gThumb+Gimp is almost everything you'll ever need to view and edit your images...
