I don't think one can crop a circle. Images can only be rectangles, I think.
I've gotten the cropped effect with transparency. You select your oval area,
copy and paste into a new file with a transparent background. Save in a file
format that accepts transparency. Or, you could select your oval area, then
select inverse, and fill with the background color you will be using on your
layout. Everything in the rectangle outside the oval shape disappears.
