I LOVE OneNote - I'm an instructor and work for a couple Microsoft Training Partners. PLEASE add the ability in OneNote to crop an image.

        It's 2018 Microsoft! Get your act together and just add a cropping tool into the application. The application is better than the online version, yet is the version of the two that doesn't have a cropping tool! Some people in previous comments have mentioned OneNote 2013, and there is now OneNote 2016, so it is obvious that community feedback is not important to you. If a cropping tool isn't added I may as well stop using Microsoft products and use other ones.

        Available in the Online version, but not in the app or full OneNote 2016. OneNote on my 5285 tablet is so close to being the tool I need. Just add the ability to crop photos taken and embedded!

        OneNote for windows 10 should allow cropping pictures in the picture tab. The option should also be available for pdfs imported as pictures!

        Why not simply associating double-click with the default image editor configured in Windows? No need for custom image tooling, just open the image in the default handler for the format.

        We should not have to download a 3rd party app (OneTastic) to get a BASIC function for images in the full desktop client (ON2016). This has 300 votes. How many until it becomes a reality?

        There are already two cropping tools in place.

        1. Right click on an image and select "crop", or

        2. Or just use the snipping tool.

        There are better screen capture and image edit tools out there -- utilize one of them, and don't over-burden an already good OneNote application. It's not intended to be everything for everyone.

        One note has a crop tool. Right click on a image, and a button says crop.

        Important for people on devices with cameras. I can take a pictures with my Surface Pro, but I can't crop unnecessary picture content.

        Specifically found this feedback area for this one particular reason to post. Onenote for Win 10 Needs to have crop for images / photos etc.!!
        Please prioritise this. Most especially if you want to be head to head with Evernote which handles images exceptionally well!
        Thats not wanting to sound like an insult as clearly I would prefer to use OneNote, but please - just add the core image tools found in any other Office app such as Word, as they are all more comprehensive than exists in Onenote.
        Thanks for listening.

        Guys... I am Bill Gates and I just wanted to say I'm sorry and we are working on it. It is a long term project and hopefully by next year or something we will have added new features toi make people's experience more enjoyable.

        Thanks.

        Also, look at the other features that Word has, with respect to image manipulation, and allow OneNote to use those too. Like the filters, the remove background tool... The Word and OneNote programming teams need to work together.

        Why is Microsoft Word's image crop and modification better than One Note's?

        Literally just copy the Word image features code and paste it into the One Note program. The image manipulation in One Note is trash. I literally have to put the image in Word, then bring it back to One Note. It's such a clunky process.

        You've already written the code! All you have to do is copy paste.

        It's 2017 - why isn't there a crop image feature????
