This is a very different use case that involves using de build in Preview tool.

Here’s what you have to do to crop a file staring from Finder

✓ Open the image with the Preview tool;

✓ Tap the button that looks like a crayon to show the Markup Toolbar;

✓ Make the selection you wish on the image;

✓ Nou will notice that the crop button show on the toolbar after you make your selection – click on that to make the crop.

Now you will also need to save you image by overriding the original or making a new copy.
