How do you crop an image in Adobe Illustrator?

ehtan

I’ve used a variety of photo/image-editing programs over the years, so I do feel a little silly asking this question, but I can’t seem to figure out how to crop an image in Adobe Illustrator. How is it done?

There isn’t a crop tool per se in Illustrator. What you actually need to do is “mask” the unwanted area in Illustrator. Adobe has a guide on how to do it.
