The Hard Way
To illustrate the power of EasyCrop, consider the following scenario.
You wish to crop and scale down a photo to send in
an email, and you want the file size to be under 50 KB.
With a full-featured graphics application,
these are the steps you would take:
Launch the app, and watch the app
icon bounce and bounce and bounce ...
Navigate clumsy file dialogs to reach
the file you wish to open.
Crop the image and scale the result.
Export the result to a temporary JPEG file.
Check file size; if it's too big, back up
two steps or try a different JPEG Quality
Open the folder containing the temporary
file in the Finder.
Drag the file into the email you are
Finally, delete the temporary file now
that you no longer need it.
The EasyCrop Way

No confusing file dialog
No temporary files to erase

EasyCrop is a small app that launches in no time.
