How to Customize Thumbnail and Crop images in WordPress

Nur . Posted in How-To, Plugins 1311 Views

I often find that the default thumbnail cropping doesn’t suit me. Just after I have uploaded an image, or after I pull it up in the “add media” screen, you’ll see a button that says Edit Image, just underneath the thumbnail
in the image above.

How To Crop Images in WordPress:

1. After uploading Click “Edit Image” and you’ll get a little editing screen.

2. Select the Area which you want to Crop.

3. After Selecting an area, Click again on Crop button.

4. Click on Save button. And your image will be cropped. After cropping and saving you can restore your original image to its original from by click on “Restore to Original From“.

This video is a great overview of all these steps:
