    If you’re trying to crop an image to the size of your artboard, you can open the Illustrator file you want to crop in Photoshop (assuming you have both). One of the options when you import the file is “Crop to:” with a drop down menu. Select “Bounding Box” and that automatically crops the image to the size of your artboard.

    got it. Open Id, crop your image. Then drag and drop into your file in Ai

    Is there any way I can crop in a 3d mode, this is very simple cropping even it can be done in mspaint.

    This was helpful I always wished illustrator could be just like photo shop crop tool. I do get the reason why though.

    Hi, thank you for your advices ! I always cropped my images on A. photoshop because i won’t be able to use adobe indesign with all his functions and that’s too bad. So, now I can use it with fluent creativity. Thank you.

    I am using Illustrator CS Version 15.1.0. My Transparency Panel is exactly the same as the one in your video but I do not have a “Make Mask” option. I am confused because I saw this same Cropping with Clipping Mask” on Adobe TV and it said this method would work in both CS5 and CS6. Any help is appreciated.

    I tried Amy’s (#2 comment) suggestion, and it worked some of the time for me. Then I found a very simple way to do it If you work on a MAC. The solution uses “Preview”.
    Here is a link to the easy instructions:

    For me the most easy way is to use artboard tool, but of course that come use some constraints. But is pretty fast comparing to others
