How to Crop a Double Chin in a Picture

That double chin you've been meaning to lose came back to bite in a recent picture. Thanks to the wonders of photo editing, you can fix flaws and remove features you don't like in digital photographs. You can easily crop a double chin in a picture and simply cut it out of the photograph. You do not need extensive skill or expertise to remove a double chin from your digital picture.

Start the photo-editing software on your computer and open the digital image within the software ("File," "Open" and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where you store the image file).

Duplicate the digital image by selecting "Image" and then "Duplicate." Close the original image to preserve it and proceed with cropping the duplicate image.

Study the image to decide where to crop out the double chin. You can at least minimise it by getting very close to your primary chin or you could also get very tight by cropping above your primary chin just below your mouth.

Select the "Crop" tool from the tabs above the workspace of your program. Position your cursor on the image down near the left corner. Press the left mouse button and drag it diagonally across the face up to the opposite corner.

Assess the crop lines blinking around the image. If you want to adjust any of the lines by bringing them in tighter or pushing them further out, click your mouse on the line and drag it in or out.

Press the "Crop" button to execute the crop command. Look at the final product of the crop to decide whether you like it. If you don't like it, click "Undo" and then crop the photo again. Continue working with the crop tool until you create the cropped effect you like and the double chin looks minimal.

Save the duplicate ("File," "Save As" and then name the cropped photo a different name from the original photograph).
