Wrong Answer

The text explains various methods for adjusting the size and aspect ratio of images using the Tools menu in Preview. Users can retain the aspect ratio by default and select the unit of measurement as pixels. They can also uncheck the "Scale proportionally" option before batch resizing images with the same aspect ratio. To constrain the cropped image to a specific aspect ratio, users can select a ratio from the Preset menu. They can also use the "Keep Aspect Ratio" option while dragging a corner of the image. The process involves using the Crop and Adjust Size tools in the Tools menu. Lastly, users can resize images by selecting the Adjust Size option and choosing a new width in pixels.

I apologize for the confusion earlier. Here's the correct way to maintain the aspect ratio when cropping in Preview on Mac:

  1. Open the image in Preview.
  2. Select the "Tools" menu and choose "Rectangular Selection" from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click and drag to select the portion of the image you want to crop. While you’re dragging, hold down the Shift key to lock the selection to a square or to the original aspect ratio.
  4. Once you have the selection, go to the "Tools" menu again and select "Crop" to apply the crop with the maintained aspect ratio.

By holding down the Shift key while dragging to make the selection, you'll be able to maintain the aspect ratio when cropping the image.
