The basic camera plugin and intel.xdk camera plugin does not allow capturing a section of image.

You have to look for a Cordova plugin that does this or write your own.

Another way to achieve this is to crop the image after it is captured using camera plugin, there are javascript libraries available to crop image using File API. Here is a stackoverflow link that may help: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11151995/crop-image-from-camera-before-upload-phonegap

Hi,

Seems that there is a plugin to crop the image from camera or gallery:

https://github.com/LokeshPatel/Cordova-Android-CropImage-Plugin

I have not tried it

Best wishes,

Diego
