Rescale an image

Select the image you want to resize and click on the 'edit' icon on the right side of the page.

In the pop-up window the image is loaded in the image editor.

When resizing, you can choose to rescale only the length or width, or to rescale the entire image:

When the link is open , you can scale the length and width independently of each other.

When the link is closed , the length and width are rescaled in the same proportions.

Adjust the number of pixels and click on 'rescale'. The image is reloaded into the new scale.

If you are not satisfied, you can always undo the change by clicking the action buttons 'undo all changes' or 'undo last change'.

It's not smart to scale images bigger than they were. This reduces the quality of the image.

Click on 'OK'. If you want to publish the image immediately, click on 'OK & Publish'. You can always adjust the image later or take it offline.
