What internal rules use the plugin for cropping?

  • The plugin will only crop image-sizes where crop is set to "true" (hard crop mode - see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_image_size).
  • If you had set one of image dimension in add_image_size to "0" or "9999" (an set crop to true) the plugin will crop it in the ratio of the original image.
  • You are able to crop all images with the same ratio at once (default) or and any imagesize (and ratio) seperate.

I have cropped the image but the old one is used on the page.

If you had viewed your image on the site before, your browser has cached the image. Go tell them to reload the fresh image from the server by hitting "F5".

I have cropped the image but in the featured-image box in the editor the croped version dont show up

Refresh or Update the editor page. Note that the image in the featured-image box will only be a preview, to show what image is choosed. The theme defines what image-size is used on the front-end.

Is it possible to crop an non-cropped image-size?

Currently not.

Is it possible to adjust the css-style of the crop-thumbnail window?

Yes, for a simple test, copy the css/cpt-window.css file into your template_directory and make some change. Then add this code into the functions.php of your template.

function myCustomStyle($content) {
    $content = get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/cpt-window.css';
    return $content;
