Resize Your Images For Speed
How to scale an image in WordPress? It’s Easy.
With all the talk about load times I figured out how to scale an image in WordPress while uploading some content to my website.
As I played with the media library upload I noticed a an “edit image” button and clicked it.
It came up with a new screen that had a scale image link in red. Once you click that a drop down reveals the image size in pixels and lets you change the values in the boxes.
Once you’ve selected the size you want, you click the blue “scale” button and voila. You have sized the image to a smaller and faster load dimension.
If you have lots of images and feature images all this loading can slow things down so every little thing helps.
This new feature is something WordPress 3.4.2 offers so take advantage of it.
