Cropping Particular Region In Image Using C# - CodeProject

Cropping Particular Region In Image Using C# - CodeProject | Image Effects, Filters, Masks and Other Image Processing Methods | Scoop.it
Firstly,  I have to explain why we need this method to crop an image. I prepared and coded this simple application GUI for my requirement, because in our big project we need to focus some region of image that we’re interested in.  So when I start to investigate this requirement and how to do this, I have met only rectangular, circle or square region to crop image. If region that we’re interested in is not rectangular, square, circle etc , what we have to do? We should be able to choose all of points of our region in image. 
Kitty Fisher's insight:

It use to be that cropping meant, sizing down your image down into a small square. Sort of like Instagram but with in this case, you can crop in any region. Read further into this article to see what using Image C# can do for you.
