After bringing basic image editing to Google Slides and Drawings, the Google Drive team has also added the same tools to Google Docs.

This, once again, means that if you need to do basic editing of images in your Google Drive files, you no longer need to involve some other 3rd-party application or website to get the job done.

Cropping images in Google Docs

Along with the ability to crop images into slightly smaller versions of themselves, you can also crop them into specific shapes, called masks. There are plenty of options to choose from out of the box, like stars, arrows and circles. Pairing this with the ability to add a custom border to your images definitely gives you a lot more flexibility in Google Docs.
