Scale It UP!

Description

This plugin permits you to scale images up, as well as down, in the default WordPress media editor.

Scenario
You have a site/blog with most content as 640×480 images (or whatever size you use). But now, for whatever reason, you want to add a 480×360 image to your site and you wish to upscale it to 640×480 so the size matches everything else and doesn’t look out of place..

Problem
Using the default WordPress media editor, you are only permitted to scale down images, not scale up. Without this plugin, your only options would be to edit the image externally (Photoshop, etc.), or figure out another solution using percentages.

Solution
Install & Activate this plugin! Now, using the default WordPress media editor, you can upscale as well as downscale your images without any hassle!

A working and simple solution.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, unzip and upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enjoy!

FAQ

I don’t see any options or settings after activating the plugin..?

There is no options/settings page for this plugin. Just go straight to the media file you wish to edit, enter your new image dimensions, and click the Scale button and you’re done!

Reviews

Been looking for this for years

WordPress used to do this without any problems. Now, they’ve chosen to disable the functionality, even for minor upscaling.

The plugin is easy to use and works perfectly.

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, and wish I’d found it long ago.

Thank you, developer! Really appreciate it!!
