How to Use the Poto’s Built-in Photo Editor to Edit Photos from Camera Roll:

Step 2: The best part of the editor is the Crop tool, as it offers various predefined aspect ratio for social sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube. To crop a photo, all you got to do is select the Crop tool and choose any of the standard predefined aspect ratios. However, if you want then you can also crop the photo with any aspect ratio you want by simply dragging the border line.
