How to Crop Photos in the Galaxy Tab Gallery

By Dan Gookin

One of the few, true image-editing commands available in the Galaxy Tab Gallery app is Crop. You can use Crop to slice out portions of an image, such as when removing ex-spouses and convicts from a family portrait. To crop an image on your Samsung Gallery Tab, obey these directions:

  1. Summon the image you want to crop.

  2. Touch the Menu icon button.

    If you can’t see the button, touch the screen, and it reappears.

  3. Choose Crop.

    If the Crop command is unavailable, you have to choose another image. (Not every album lets you modify images.)

  4. Work the crop-thing.

    You can drag the orange rectangle around to choose which part of the image to crop. Drag an edge of the rectangle to resize the left and right or top and bottom sides. Or, drag a corner of the rectangle to change the rectangle’s size proportionally.


  5. Touch the Ok button when you’re done cropping.

    Only the portion of the image within the orange rectangle is saved; the rest is discarded.

There’s no way to undo a crop action after you’ve touched the Ok button.

Working the rectangle to crop an image can be frustrating. When the image zooms in too small, you may have difficulty zooming back out. At that point, you can touch the X (Cancel) button and start over again.
