Resizing an Image on the Page
Resizing An Image on the Page
Once you have inserted an image into a page, you can easily resize it. However, NEVER ENLARGE an image from the size at which it was inserted, or it will become pixelated.
To resize an image on the page, click Edit on the page to go into editing mode. Depending on the size of the image, you may want to enlarge the Body Text box to make it easier to work in.
Click on the image you want to resize, and you will see anchor points (little white boxes) around its edges and corners.
Move the mouse cursor over one of the corner anchor points, and the cursor turns into a two-way arrow. Now, hold down Shift and click and drag that corner anchor point, and you will resize the photo. As you are clicking and dragging, you’ll see two small numbers appear and change as you move your mouse. The first number is the width of the dimension, while the second is the height, both in pixels. It’s very important that you keep holding down Shift while you are clicking and dragging because that keeps the photo’s dimensions proportional.
When you have resized the photo to your satisfaction, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Save” button.
NOTE: There is a quirk in the editing interface where if you have set a photo's alignment to Left or Right, it will not resize proportionally even if you hold down Shift while clicking and dragging the anchor points. To get around this problem, set the photo's alignment to Inline first, resize it, and then go back and change the alignment to Left or Right.
