Editing Images Within OU Campus

Most often, "resize" and "crop" are the tools used when editing an image to place on a webpage. Using these tools will allow you to edit the image to the exact size it will be used on the page.

NOTE: If adding a faculty/staff image, each image should be the same width on the page to display correctly.

Resize

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.

Crop (Custom)

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.

Rotate

The Rotate tool rotates the image (edited and unedited) 45 degrees in a clockwise direction with each click.

Undo/Redo

The Undo and Redo functionality is available after performing another editing function.

 Using the OU Campus image editor to crop and resize images will give you the freedom to crop and resize images to the exact file size used on the web page.
