The code is based on custom GDI+ class. Download the class module first and save it in gdiplus.prg file.

    * an instance of gdiplusinit should be created before 
    * and released after using any of gdi+ objects

    gdip = CREATEOBJECT("gdiplusinit")
    * source and target files

    cSrcFile = "c:\windows\forest.bmp"
    cDstFile = SYS(2023) + "\test.jpg"

    LOCAL src As gdiimage
    src = CREATEOBJECT("gdiimage", cSrcFile)
    IF src.himage = 0

    * set crop coordinates and dimensions
    LOCAL cropLeft, cropTop, cropWidth, cropHeight
    cropLeft = 10
    cropTop = 80
    cropWidth = src.imgwidth - m.cropLeft

    * draw source image on the target bitmap;

    My comment:
    Initially I used the GdipDrawImageI to draw a part of the source image on target bitmap. A difference in resolutions (DPI) between them often caused dimension issues. So finally I decided to use the GdipDrawImageRectI for cropping.
