You only have to tell the system whether you want to reduce or to extend them.

After typing the values for Top/Right/Bottom/Left, you can hit the button to apply changes and download the new file.

Pro Tip: See the “Add more files” button in the bottom-left corner? If you click that button, you can start merging other PDF files in this file that you’ve just cropped.

This way, you can both crop a PDF document and combine it with another file.
