It depends on the class. The standalone class adapts the page size
to the content. So if you put something large in it you get a large
page size. The article class does not adapt the page size. If you
put something too large in it you get overfull box messages and part
of the content can be clipped at the border.

Your starting example used local images and fonts so couldn't be
tested, but as Heiko wrote: rotating can enlarge content and white
space in the image can suddenly matter:

\fbox{\includegraphics[trim=0 0 -100 0, width=5cm]{example-image}}

\fbox{\includegraphics[trim=0 0 -100 0, width=5cm,
