As a blogger we generally spend good amount of time by editing images, creating diagrams for blog posts. I personally use PowerPoint for most of these diagram creation and images editing for my blog post. ‘Crop Image to a Shape’  was something that I overlooked. In fact, I have seen this feature earlier, but could not realized that I could use this feature for nice image editing for my own posts. This was something I realized while writing How to change Menu Bar Style in Visual Studio 2015 ? post .

The bottom part of this image has been cropped ( just to give a fancy look though 🙂  )
