The main image you will be cropping:

<img width="<?= $width; ?>" height="<?= $height; ?>" max-width="<?=$max_width;?>" class="border" id="user_profile_photo" alt="<?=alt_text;?>" src="<?= image_source; ?>">

The preview image: (the ids here are fixed, and the 75px must be stated but can be changed)

<div style="display:none;" id="js_photo_preview">
    <div class="p_2">
      <div id="js_profile_photo_preview_container" style="position:relative; overflow:hidden; width:75px; height:75px; border:1px #000 solid;">

The form to send the information to your controller:

$form = ActiveForm::begin(['action' => Yii::$app->urlManager->createUrl(['your/url/here']), 'options' => ['id' => 'crop_form'],
<div><input type="hidden" id="x1" value="" name="x1"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" id="y1" value="" name="y1"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" id="x2" value="" name="x2"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" id="y2" value="" name="y2"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" id="w" value="" name="w"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" id="h" value="" name="h"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" value="<?= $width; ?>" name="image_width"></div>
<div><input type="hidden" value="<?= $height; ?>" name="image_height"></div>                
<div style="margin-top:10px;">
<input type="submit" class="button" id="js_save_profile_photo" value="Save Avatar">

<?php ActiveForm::end(); ?>

Javascript to submit the form:

$(document).ready(function () {

    $(document.body).on('submit', '#crop_form', function (e) {

        var frm = $(this); //just sent text

            type: frm.attr('method'),
            url: frm.attr('action'),
            dataType: 'json',
            data: frm.serialize(),
            success: function (data) {

                if (data) {

                   //do something
        return false;

$request = Yii::$app->request;

$x1 = $request->post('x1');
$x2 = $request->post('x2');
$y1 = $request->post('y1');
$y2 = $request->post('y2');

$h = $request->post('h');
$w = $request->post('w');

$image_height = $request->post('image_height');
$image_width = $request->post('image_width');

if (empty($w)) {
  //nothing selected
$image = imagecreatefromjpeg($image_source);

$width = imagesx($image);
$height = imagesy($image);

$resized_width = ((int) $x2) - ((int) $x1);
$resized_height = ((int) $y2) - ((int) $y1);

 $resized_image = imagecreatetruecolor($resized_width, $resized_height);
 imagecopyresampled($resized_image, $image, 0, 0, (int) $x1, (int) $y1, $width, $height, $width, $height);
 imagejpeg($resized_image, $image_source);
