To start,

the word perimeter is there... and it's a "definition" for the word rim, which is inside it. Surely, that must be relevant?

And if you line up the red frame, you can see it perfectly covers the word "rim".

The word "limit", though... it doesn't have a nice substring that it defines. But it is written strangely...

enter image description here
...and if we look carefully, we can see the word CAP!

So, now to continue this with the rest!

It starts to get trickier from here:


enter image description here
PAL is written upside-down...

...and HIP and ROYAL are written sideways.

And some even weirder things happen...

The next two are entirely based on the font's design, not really using the individual letters:

...the next one is in whitespace...
enter image description here

... and the last one is in hanzi! Online translators give "thermal" for 熱的, and indeed we can find HOT inside it.
enter image description here

Great!

...now what?

Let's try filling things into the bottom part! Based off of ROYAL and HIP, it looks like we should rotate all of these before entering them:

And now...

we can do it again, and get

MACROPHOTOGRAPHY!

But there's still one more thing:

the bottom row tells us we can do the same thing yet again. And this gives us the final answer to the puzzle, CROP:
