Click 2 Crop is an easy to use photo editor designed keeping one thing in mind — Speed. Click 2 Crop enables you to crop, resize and optimize your photos very fast, within a few mouse clicks.
It has a simple but very effective crop tool that lets you preview the result while you're editing the image. You can crop the image to remove unwanted areas of the frame or to create a zoomed-in effect, and can view the output on the fly while you're doing these edits.
Let's face a very real-like user case: imagine that your friend comes to you with a thumb-drive full of photos (500 photos) of his latest vacation in Rio. He wants to see these photos with you. Also he asks you to help to find and prepare few best photos for printing and for display them in a digital photo frame.
Preview is good for viewing and editing separate image file. When you need to browse through a folder with 500 photos you will not be comfortable with Preview.

Click 2 Crop is created by Mazaika.com, producer of one of the best Photo Mosaic program Mazaika. We needed small, simple and effective software for manual cutting of hundreds of large photographs into thousands of smaller images with simple content. The initial version of Click 2 Crop was designed for this task only. But its user interface was so simple and efficient that people who used Click 2 Crop for their photo mosaic projects wished to keep using Click 2 Crop as their general purpose photo editor and viewer.
