Project Description

Command line tool and module to crop an image to a specific resolution removing less important parts first.

First started with the approch of this publication but seems a bit complex and slow (

cropy uses entropy information to identify slices of the image with less informations.


To use with command line:

cropy -i [input image] -r [width] [height] -o [output name] -s [maxSteps]
  • input image : location of the image to crop
  • width, eight : dimensions of the resultant cropped image
  • output name : name of the output image (default : original_name.width.eight.orginal_extension)
  • maxSteps : number of iteration : greater means more precision but slower (default : 10)

More info and examples on

Possible upgrade

  • locate faces inside image to prevent removing
  • locate text on images to crop first


Inspired from slycrop (php entropy based crop) :
