OU Campus Training and Standards
The OU Campus Image Editor allows images to be resized, cropped and rotated directly in OU Campus. An image can be edited and uploaded from the Upload To dialog within the Pages list view of OU Campus. NOTE: It is VERY IMPORTANT that you do not upload images larger than how they will display on the page. Follow instructions below to edit images to the proper size.

- Select the "Insert/Edit Image" button:

You will want to use "resize" and "crop". Using these tools will allow you to edit the image to the exact size it will be used on the page.
The Resize tool includes the ability to specify a new width and height for an image to upload. The original ratio for the dimensions of the width and height for can be kept intact by selecting the Preserver Ratio checkbox.
The Crop tool can be used to reduce the dimensions of the image by either selecting a ratio or by determining a custom crop size by manipulating the crop box by dragging the crop handles located on the edges of the crop box.
The Rotate tool rotates the image (edited and unedited) 45 degrees in a clockwise direction with each click.
The Undo and Redo functionality is available after performing another editing function.
