Options are available both inside and outside of WordPress to crop and resize images. There are many programs (such as Photoshop) that are available to help you crop your images prior to uploading them to a web site. If you don’t have this type of software, web sites such as Adobe Photoshop Express allows you to quickly crop, straighten, rotate, and resize your images — for free. There’s no paid subscription and it’s all done through the browser. If you wish to use WordPress’ capabilities to crop or resize images, the video below will demonstrate how.
