Support » Fixing WordPress » Thumbnails not cropping

  • Resolved Godaisies


    So I’m uploading images to my portfolio website. These are large portrait images. I set the image as the featured image. When I view my thumbnails, they take forever to load since they’re loading in just a squashed version of the whole image. So I then go in to edit my featured image, crop to a new thumbnail size. Save, update, then refresh the page. Nope. My cropped thumbnail still isn’t showing.

    I’m using 1and1 as my host. Any ideas?

    Once you’ve cropped the image, you’ll need to re-insert the cropped image in your post. When you crop an image, it makes a new version and saves it in your uploads, but doesn’t replace the original.

    Personally, I find it way easier to resize in Photoshop prior to uploading to WordPress.

    Thanks! I usually use Photoshop but since I have so many images I want to put up…

    Try using Crop Me, that may be easier than Photoshop.
