I have some images from a camera that I've put on my website, www.mecnita.com/peru.htm. I transferred them to Paint before posting them, in order to enlarge them, and somehow they have acquired huge margins of white to the right and below, making it impossible to add titles. So I took them back to Paint, but haven't found a way to cut off the white margins. In Photoshop, I could crop them, but I don't have Photoshop at present. Is there a way to crop them in Paint?Update:
I can draw the rectangle in Paint, but if I copy and go to my page editor, the option to paste does not appear. If I save, and upload to my site from Images, the margin still comes with the picture.

draw rectangle over what you want then press ctrl + c (copy) reopen paint then press ctrl + v (paste) then make it bigger (stretch it out)
1. Click the View->Tool Box menu item.
2. Click the top icon in the right-hand column.
You can now draw a rectangle with the mouse.
Hope that helps.
By the way, the picture may have developed that white margin by going through Paint before. Paint tends to keep a white background the size of the last image it handled. If the next image is smaller, it gets this right-and-below border.
The way to get rid of it is to grab the lower right corner of the background before inserting a new image and drag it up to the left until it's very small.
Yes, you can! All you have to do is paste the picture into paint, position it, and move the little blue dot in the corner of the white canvas to the corner of the picture. Or wherever the part is that you want to cut off. =D
How about you use Microsoft Office Picture Manager? It's more convenient to edit photos than in Paint.
You have your answer from another poster. I'd add that this is a free paint replacement that has far more features then paint and it was developed at MIT for MS.
Cut it, then paste it into the document and make the canvas smaller. Or just open a new document in the program and paste it there. If you make the starting canvas smaller than what you're pasting it will automatically expand to accommodate it.
yeah just border cut and paste and voila. One hot steamy croped
