Images »Editing an Image

When you upload an image to your Media Library, you have some basic editing options available (crop, rotate, flip).

Choosing an Image to Edit
Cropping an Image
Rotating an Image
Flipping an Image
Saving an Edited Image
Reverting an Image

While these image editing tools are free, the site must be set to public for the tools to work. Advanced image editing does not work with a site set to private.

Choosing an Image to Edit

  • Go to My Sites Media, or choose an image you’ve already added to a post or page.
  • Select the image, then click Edit.
  • On the window that opens up, select Edit Image:

Cropping an Image

You can remove an unwanted portion of an image you have uploaded to your Media Library by using our cropping feature.

First, click and drag the cropping overlay to select the area you want. You can also select Crop and then choose a specific aspect ratio to crop automatically.

Reverting an Image

In the event you want to revert the changes you’ve made, you have the ability to cancel your edits on an image and revert to the original version that you first uploaded to your Media Library.

If you’re sure you would like to restore an image, click on the image in the media library, select Edit, then choose the Restore Original button. The image will then revert back to its original form.

Please note that if you’ve inserted an edited image into other published posts, reverting an image may break this link on these posts.
