Step 3 (Click on the ... Preview button to pull in an example photo. This will help you to determine cropping. As seen in the example below there is some white space around Ruger's ID photo.
You can play with the cropping numbers and click on Tab to see your adjustments. In this case I set the Top to 0 and the bottom to 140 and there is no more white space around the photo.
