    some of my photos get cut off, is there any way where i can just upload the picture and the website does not change its size but also does not cut off the picutre?

    right now the pictures are changed to 800x600, is there a way to automatically change the image size so there is no cutoff?

    You will want to explore the Media Settings page in the Admin panels of WordPress. wp-admin/options-media.php

    Crop thumbnails is the checkbox that cuts off pictures.

    The sizes you put in the other fields determine how each picture is resized during the Upload process. In fact, there can be four or more copies of the picture, as resizings are done, if necessary, for the Thumbnail, Medium and Large (there is also Full Size, which is the original picture).

    Not knowing whether your web site uses the Thumbnail, Medium or Large resizing, I cannot tell you which of the Sizes needs changing in that panel.

    When you said "video", I assume you mean a still picture, as in .jpg or other format.

    When WordPress makes multiple copies of a still picture during upload, only one gets cropped: the Thumbnail. If you don't want that, then turn the option off in Media Settings. But that only changes how newly-uploaded pictures will be handled.

    The size and cropping you see on the web page depends on how the page is coded. In the coding, you can ask for Thumbnail, Medium, Large and Full Size.
