Illustrator question

asked Sep 6, 2013 in Graphic Design by jeremy (380 points)
Hello all
This is a bit odd but I can’t seem to find a way to crop my images in Illustrator. I looked everywhere but I can’t see an option for cropping images. I need to crop an image using Illustrator and then add a border around that cropped image. Can anyone please tell me how can I do this?
Appreciate you support

You cannot crop an image in Illustrator the same way you do it in Photoshop. In Illustrator you should first mask out an area you want to exclude. Try searching Illustrator  Help pages for Clipping Mask
