Edit an image in Pages on iPad
After you add a photo or graphic to your document, you can crop it and remove parts you don’t want.
Mask (crop) a photo
You can hide unwanted portions of an image without modifying the image file.
Double-tap the image.
The mask controls appear. The default mask is the same size as your image.
Use the controls to change which parts of the image are visible:
Tap Done when you’re finished.
Double-tap the image at any time to readjust its mask.
Remove background and a color from a photo
You can remove a background or color from an image with the Remove Background tool.
Tap the image to select it, then tap Remove Background (you may have to tap first).
If possible, the background is automatically removed.
Do any of the following:
Remove another color: Drag over the color you want to remove.
As you drag, the mask selection grows to include areas that use similar colors.
Undo all changes: Tap Reset in the controls.
To work with multiple images at the same time, touch and hold one image, then tap the other images with another finger.
