After this, initialize an instance of Canvas and image class provided by Fabric.JS and give the width to be cropped of the canvas image in pixels using the cropX property of the image object.


fabric.Image(image, {

Parameters: The above function takes two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • image: This parameter takes the image.
  • cropX: This parameter is the amount of image crop in pixels from the original size of the image.
