My. Land. How did I just learn how to crop an image in WordPress? Seriously. This tool will save bloggers a ton of time. No more uploading 5,000 different crops to get a post image to look juuuust right.
I thought I’d share this tip with folks who have yet to utilize this amazing tool. Oh, and there are several other tools that are equally as useful for bloggers who want to have a bit more editing options for their blog post images.
Here’s how to get a great image crop through your WordPress dashboard.
1. Go to your media section and select the image you want to crop.
2. Hit the button below your image to edit.
3. Then follow this!
Cropping and saving means that you will no longer be able to revert to your old, uncropped image so crop with caution.
Oh, and there are some other image editing tools like rotating, flipping, and scaling. Wowers. Go crop crazy!
