Cropping is one of the important operations of the image processing to remove unwanted portions of an image as well as to add required features to an image. It is widely used process in web applications, for uploading an image.
The crop() function of the image class in Pillow requires the portion to be cropped as rectangle. The rectangle portion to be cropped from an image is specified as a four-element tuple and returns the rectangle portion of the image that has been cropped as an image Object.
Following example demonstrates how to rotate an image using python pillow −

If you save the above program as Example.py and execute, it displays the original and cropped images using standard PNG display utility, as follows −
