A tool is specially designed for this purpose and allows you to easily crop a picture without keeping its proportions. This tool is called ''Découpage''.
In the image processing software The GIMP, take the ''Découpage'' tool. The tool is represented by an image of a small knife.
Draw a frame with the left click button. This framework corresponds to the area to be retained when you press the ''Enter'' key on your keyboard.
You have 4 handles (the squares at each corner of the image) as well as areas on the 4 lengths of the frame you can change while maintaining a left click and moving the mouse to change the dimensions of this framework.
By maintaining a click inside the frame, you can move it to your liking.
To eliminate all that is not selected, press the ''Enter'' key on your keyboard.
