Can I Crop Images with the Camera? (EOS 70D)


It is not possible to use the camera to crop or perform angular adjustments on images saved to the camera.However, you can use the [Cropping] setting on the print setting screen to crop the image and print only an enlarged version of the cropped portion, as if the image had been recomposed.
  • Set the cropping right before printing. If you change the print settings after setting the cropping, you may have to set the cropping again before printing.
  • While cropping the image, look at the cameras LCD monitor. If you look at the image on a TV screen, the cropping frame may not be displayed accurately.
