Double tap focus 👆👆

It zooms-in to the touch points on double tap. Restores default state when user double taps on max scale state.

Pinch Zoom 👌

Zoom in and out with two finger.

Free Mode 🤟

You can crop your image in free mode. In any size.

Aspect Ratio Mode 📱

Enhanced aspect ratio mode will help you while cropping. Aspect ratio will be fixed while you play with cropper. So for your social media apps, it will help you to crop in fixed size (instagram, facebook, twitter, 16:9, 1:2, 3:2 and more..)

Size Displayer 🔟

While you scale your image, size displayer indicates the bitmap size reactively. It will provide a smoother experience to the user.

Auto Centered 😍

What ever you do while cropping, we center the bitmap with animation. Smoother experience for user.

Animations 🌟

We use animation everywhere in this cropper. User zoomed-out too much? We zoom back in with animation. User scrolled image out of borders? We scroll it back with animation.
