As an example, is there an easy way to crop away the o's in the Google logo using Gimp?

The result should then be "Ggle" with a smaller image width than the original because the o's are missing.

It's easiest to copy the elements you want to keep to new layers, then align them and crop.

If you really want to try and do a 'reverse crop', I'd recommend using the Layer > Liquid Rescale feature. Add a Feature Discard Mask around the elements you wish to disappear, then rescale until they are gone.

  • +1 for suggesting the Liquid Rescale. But you forgot to mention it does not ship with GIMP and have to be installed separately (it is a 3rd party plug-in) – jsbueno Jan 21 '14 at 21:15
