How to Use the WordPress Image Uploader and Image Editor

Last updated on

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve spent some time playing with the new WordPress image editor that shipped with WordPress 2.9. It’s pretty cool and something you should play around with if you use any images on your site. I went ahead and did a short video tutorial covering the important parts. The video runs about 6 minutes.

    Really helpful video Michael. Thanks a million. I thought I’d lost it…but found it again!

  2. Michael,

    Thanks for this info, we were using the image upload feature without knowing that there is option to scale/crop.Good work and helped us.


  3. hier reat video, easy to follow and understand, however, as I am using your WP-Mystique theme I wanted to do something similar at the top of my home page above the featured article section and possibly other pages as well. Not sure how to do this as there is no Header button in WP associated with this theme. Also, not able to make radio buttons on the this page above the featured article either.

    Yes I am a Newbie to Solostream and thought that I had a fair bit of experience with WP as that what I used in the past but decided to get a little flasher and more professional look to my blog using your products.

    Been trying to find a step by step by step example of how to make my pages look like your theme demo pages but not able to locate.

    Any and all help will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for posting this video–I never noticed the photo edit button before in WP 2.9.X.

    I thought that WP automatically added any photo you upload from your computer to a post into the Media Gallery.
    That’s always been my experience, but maybe that’s a setting I enabled somewhere within the WP admin control panel.

    Personally, I like having all my images in the Media Gallery so I can quickly see all photos in one place, without having to use FTP to hunt through the various monthly ‘upload’ folders.

    • Thanks for the comment Charles.

      Yes, that’s true. Did I say otherwise in the video?
