In certain situations, you may not be able to clip an image. While this can be frustrating, there is a way to save the image you need to the Clipper.

There are 2 possible reasons you may not be able to clip an image:

  1. The image quality is not good enough. Ivy does not allow you to clip images smaller than 70px. This is in place to protect you from saving low-quality images that won’t look good in your projects.
  2. The vendor site does not allow clipping.
