If you want to shrink a binary image in place, without cropping out, then you can use imerode() to eat away outer layers of the binary blob(s).

You can create a circle mask as shown in the FAQ:
So if the mask is true in the circle and false outside, do
binaryImage(~mask) = true;
For what it's worth, I've also attached a circle masking demo.

You need to extract the object first and imresize() on the extracted part. Consider using regionprops with the Image property to get the extracted object.
