Default how do I put a picture within a circle

Hi Guys. Just wondered how to crop a rectangular picture and put it into a smaller circle. I read the tutorial but am having some difficulty. Also no understando about having image and circle selected at same time. Can anyone help ?

Insert the image on the page. Drag a circle quickshape on top of it, make it a transparent fill and size it. Select both objects or drag a marquee around them and Tools > Crop to Shape.

Might also want to change the circle QS line/outline to none or some thickness/color appropriate to the photo.

Picture taking. It's a snap!

Good photography. It's complicated.

hi Mjh, thanks for the quick response. OK I got the first bit right . I got the shape over my image. Made the circle shape transparent, now how do I select both objects?

Hold down the CTRL key and select both, the QuickShape on top.

Yup, that's the other way to achieve your objective. A bit slow with a one bottom plow, however.

No need for this, Jim - it crops to shape only, it does not retain any of the QS colouring or outline.
