In any photo editing app, the crop tool is the most useful one to remove unnecessary portions from an image. All simple and powerful photo-editors provide a basic crop tool. However, when it comes to cropping according to shapes, very few of them have anything to offer.

GIMP is the free photo-manipulation tool available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Though it has been around for a while, it lacks the shape crop feature. However, that doesn’t mean you cannot achieve the same in it. All you need to do is follow a workaround. You can then crop images in any shape.

In this tutorial, we will tell you how to crop a picture into a circular shape in GIMP. You can use the same method for other shapes too, such as oval, alphabets, etc. Let’s get started.

Here is How to Perform a Circular Crop in GIMP

Here are the steps:

Step 1: Launch GIMP and open the image in it that you want to crop.

Step 2: Since GIMP doesn’t offer a built-in way to crop an image into a circular shape, we will be taking the help of the Ellipse selection tool. For that, click on the Ellipse tool in the toolbar, the one that is oval shaped. Alternatively, press the E key on your keyboard to activate that tool.

Step 3: Using your mouse draw a circle on the desired area of the image. By default, the circle will not be of the fixed shape. To keep the size fixed, check the Fixed option from the Tool Options present in the left sidebar. Then draw a circle.

Step 4: Click and drag the mouse on the selected area to change its position. To increase or decrease the selection size, use the four corners of the selection.

Step 5: Now, there are three methods to create a circular image. Let’s check them out individually.

Method 1: Paste on Another Image

If you want to paste the circular image directly on another image without saving it, here’s how to go about it.

Step 1: Right-click on the selected area of step 4 above and go to Edit > Copy.

Step 2: Open the second image in GIMP using File > Open.

Step 3: Right-click on the new image and go to Edit > Paste. Alternatively, use the shortcut Ctrl + V (Windows) and Command + V (Mac).

Use the Scale and Move tools to adjust your pasted image.

Step 5: Save the image using File > Export as.

Method 2: Remove Background

Another way to create a circular image is to remove the background. You will also get the image with a transparent background using this method.

To do so, follow these steps:

Step 1: Once you have selected your desired circular area using the Ellipse tool, right-click on the selection and choose Select > Invert. Alternatively, use the shortcut Ctrl + I. You will see that the outer area gets selected now.

Step 2: To get a transparent background, you need to add an alpha channel to your image. For that, right-click on your image layer under Layers tab in the sidebar and click on Add Alpha Channel.

Tip: Layers not having an alpha channel are in bold.

Go Round

Rounded images have several benefits. They are usable on social media as profile pictures. With a transparent background, you can put them on best of any image giving it a distinctive look. In GIMP, you can delete the circular cropped section and replace it with a new image too.
