    I'm considering using the Telerik platform to develop a phone application. One of the functions I need to perform is to be allow a user to crop a picture of themselves to focus on their face.

    When I search through these forums to find out how to edit an image and perform cropping, I see a lot of references to an ImageEditor, but I can't tell if it is something I can use on a hybrid phone app.  

    I there the capability to crop images in the hybrid phone app development platform of Telerik?

    Hi Terry,

    If you are going to support iOS only, you could use the Camera core plugin with enabled allowEdit option to crop images.

    To support multiple OS types, you can try a jQuery plugin for cropping images. One such plugin that is optimized for touch is available here:
    https://github.com/acornejo/jquery-cropbox

    There are multiple other jQuery crop plugins, so you can look around for the one that best suits your requirements.
