Notes:

a.

The aspect ratio (ratio of width to height) of the cropping window is based on the aspect ratio of the media placeholder that you are configuring. In the example above, both the image and the cropping window are rectangular. This is what ensures that the image is displayed correctly in the scene.

b.

As you move the cropping window to select an area of the image, you can see a preview on the right side of the page.

c.

You can always click the Reset button below the cropping area to discard the changes and start again.
