Tutorial: How to crop images within WordPress

WordPress is great for resizing the resolution and file size of images you upload using its editor. If you upload a huge 3000 x 2000 pixel 8MB digital camera snapshot, WordPress will do the work to reduce the image to a web-friendly 600 x 400 pixel 100KB file.

And now (as of WP version 2.9) it’s also possible to crop and rotate your images from within WordPress. No Photoshop required! Watch this video to learn how.

    Thanks for this- I was searching all over to find this feature on the Dashboard menu, under Media & in the post editor. I would have never found it without your video. I respect that you started in the right place and didn’t skip steps. I can tell you tested it.

    hello, nice video but I got a question: how can I resize automatically some images in template using i.e. img src=”path/to/crop.php?img=abc.jpg” ? On my server phpthumb like plugins doesn’t seem to work… any suggestions?
