imgAreaSelect is a jQuery plugin that enables you to create selectable areas on images which is a widely used technique for cropping images.
Once an area is selected, you can get the x-y coordinates & apply any actions on that part of the image like cropping or implementing effects.
The plugin is very flexible & offers options like:
- aspect ratio
- max height, max width
- whether it can be resize or not
- keyboard support & more..
There is also an image crop tutorial using imgAreaSelect & PHP that can be found here.
