Using the built-in photo editor

The Image Wizard photo cropping tool is available for photo galleries, spotlight groups and news feeds to allow users to easily resize and crop photos. When a size category is assigned to the photo gallery or spotlight group, the photos must be cropped to the same width and height.

Note: Only web administrators have the ability to add size category presets. Once a preset is in the system, any user can apply the size category to their gallery or spotlight group. 

Using Size Categories for Photo Galleries

Note: Photo galleries can be created without any size category applied. When no preset is selected, the image cropping tool will not be available.

  2. Click the Add Photo button.
  3. Click Select New Image to Upload to upload an image for the computer.
