Crop Settings

Input fields to set the dimensions and location of the crop rectangle are loaded below the uploaded GIF. The crop rectangle uses the top-left coordinate system where the origin (0, 0) is at the top-left edge of the uploaded GIF. Positive Y goes in the downwards direction of your screen so the higher the value entered in the top input field the farther from the top of the GIF the crop rectangle will be.

left - the distance of the left edge of crop rectangle from the left edge of the uploaded GIF.
top - the distance of the top edge of crop rectangle from the top edge of the uploaded GIF.
width - distance between left and right edges of the crop bounding rectangle.
