Does your webcam exceed the dimensions of your custom overlay? Do you need to crop out an area of your room? Sometimes you need to crop a webcam image in OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) before you cans stream on Twitch, Facebook Gaming, or YouTube Gaming. I’ll show you how in this post. 

To crop your webcam image in OSB, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1

    Launch XSplit Broadcaster.

  2. Step 2

    Press “alt” as you adjust the camera, then drag the edges you want to crop. (The lines will turn green as you crop them). 

  3. Step 3

    To remove the cropping, press “alt” again, then adjust the camera until the lines turn red again. 

  4. Step 4

    Stop cropping when you are satisfied. 

Decorate Your Cropped Screen

Once you have cropped your webcam, you can remove the background with a greenscreen or decorate it with stickers or overlays. Try to keep things on brand, matching your colors, themes, and the style of content you produce.
