Ubuntu – How to crop from the default image viewer

11.10image processingimage-viewers

I recall an Edit Image button in 11.04 that would bring up a second window with a Crop button easily visible.

But now, in 11.10, I see no such button. In fact, I can't find a way to crop at all from the default image viewer.

How can I crop an image from the default image viewer?

Once the image is opened you can right click on it and choose to open with Shotwell Image Viewer. It will open up a new window where you can crop/edit the image and save it.
Once saved you can close the 2nd window and see the changes in the default image viewer.

Alternatively you can set Shotwell Image Viewer to be your default image viewer.
