Hello,

The bitmap crop feature will be available in 0.49 (no release date yet).

With 0.48, you can use the following workaround:
1. Draw a shape on your bitmap, masking the part you want to keep.
2. Select the shape and the bitmap and use Object>Clip>Set.

More details on clipping in the Inkscape manual (http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Clip.html).

But if you already know the size you need for your bitmap, you can also cut it with Gimp and then import it in Inkscape.

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
