THE HELP! FILES: IMAGE EDITS
Sometimes photos that have been used on your WordPress site need to be cropped to a certain size before you can upload them. This is most common for slideshows – and WordPress will auto crop the image for you, but sometimes it just doesn’t look right (see below).
Or you might want to use photos on your website that are all the same size – and will require some cropping before uploading.
Instead of purchasing Photoshop, we encourage clients to use Pixlr – an online editor that has many of the same features of Photoshop, but it’s free! Now let’s take the photo below and crop it so it appears properly in our slideshow.
Below is the cropped photo of Kauai at 900 pixels wide x 340 pixels tall, saved at a quality of 45.
