Your content management system makes it easy to resize an image without having to use a third party software.
Let's get started!
You can resize a new photo that you are adding to the site, or you can re-size one that is already on the site. For this tutorial we'll go through all of the steps.
Select your image:
To add the photo, use the tree button in your editing box:
When you select this button a new box pops up. Use the button to the right of the Image URL field to browse your computer for a photo to upload.
When you click this button, a new window appears that allows you to actually search. Click the Upload button
A new fieldset will appear allowing you to search your computer for an image:
Click the browse button, find your image and click open.
The path to your image will now display in the file field. Click upload.
Resizing your image
If you've just uploaded your image, you will see it highlighted in blue. If you are trying to resize an existing image, or you don't see your image highlighted, browse the text of the uploaded images and click once on your image. (clicking once will highlight your image, clicking twice will insert it) The image that you need to resize should be highlighted to start the re-sizing process.
Click the "resize" button on the top of the window. (if you don't see a resize button your version may need to be upgraded, please send us a note and we'll get you upgraded.)
Once the resize button has been clicked, a drop down appears with resizing options.
Fill in the width that you would like the final image and then push "tab" on your keyboard to have the CMS find the correct height (to maintain the aspect ratio). Click resize. A new image will be created. Click on this image to insert it to the body of the page you are working on.
After you click the image, you will be brought back to the initial window that opened, but this time your image will be there in the preview pane. Add an image description and Title (this will help your Search Engine rankings, so use some good descriptive keywords). Click Insert.
