Custom Image Sizes

Allows you to create custom thumbnail sizes beyond the default large, medium, thumbnail sizes found in Settings > Media.

Notes

Changes won’t take effect until you rebuild the thumbnails.

Options include:

  • Name
  • Width
  • Height
  • Crop
    • No cropping
    • Top / Left
    • Top / Center
    • Top / Right
    • Center / Left
    • Center / Center
    • Center / Right
    • Bottom / Left
    • Bottom / Center
    • Bottom / Right

Notes

Due to restrictions with the WordPress file names, you can’t have two image sizes with the same with and height and different cropping options. The best work around is to adjust the dimensions by 1 pixel and then resize the image in CSS.

Adding a new custom image size will not affect images that have already been uploaded, only images uploaded after the custome image size has been added. To amend previously uploaded images, you will need to re-build the thumbnails. We recommend Regenerate Thumbnails.
