    Hi. I scanned some docs as jpg, but I forgot to crop them to A4 as I wanted. Is there any simple way to crop them after I have saved them or I have to scan them again? Thanks.

    In addition to what dolphin_oracle suggested,

    If you want to crop them individually using a GUI tool, antiX ships with mtPaint Graphic Editor.

    If you want to crop them as a batch using a CLI tool, antiX ships with ImageMagick.

    Many thanks for the answers.
    It seems that I have to set mirage’s crop utility parameters like this:

    X: 222 Width:  2100
    Y: 0   Height: 2970

    But I’m not sure that doing this for all images is less waste of time than scanning the docs again.
    On the other hand, imagemagick doesn’t seem to be simple enough.
