I'm trying to crop a scanned photo. I followed the instructions from HERE (http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/33648/windows-8-how-to-crop-or-rotate-images/)

But, when I right-clicked on the photo there isn't any 'crop' or 'rotate' option'! What have I done wrong?

I just wish to do a simple cropping of that photo. Is there any other apps I can use other than this Photo App?

OS : Windows 8 Pro.

Download and install IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/)... its great, free, light, and many will agree that its good to make it your computer's default image viewer. Amongst its features (which are pretty basic) is the ability to do most image manipulations you'll want.

pcuser42: Thanks for the link.

Speedy: Just used Paint to crop it, easy enough.

Thanks, guys. :)
