Editing images

It is possible to resize your pictures in two ways:

  • After adding the picture to your page, click on it and drag the red resize handle to change the size of your image. Please note: If you've added your image to a Text widget, you can click on the image and you'll see the image highlight with 4 resize handles. If you want to resize non-proportionally, hold the shift key while dragging on the resize handle. OR
  • Use our integrated editor - Aviary, a powerful image manipulation editing service.

Using Aviary  

Aviary is a powerful image manipulation tool which is integrated into the Sitebuilder. 

When you edit your images with Aviary one of the options available is "Resize". You can type in the new image dimensions and then save your picture to your File Manager. If you would like to edit your image using the Aviary option, these are a couple of ways to do this:

Option 1: If you have used a Picture widget

1. Mouseover the picture you wish to edit and click on the blue pencil icon on the top right-hand corner or click Edit on the top left corner.
