Image resizing

how do you teach clients to resize the images. are they supposed to do them in an image editor before uploading, or do you use the resize tool inside the posting tab?

and how do you create thumbnails for use in other parts of the site?

any good plugins you recommend to help your clients out?

yes this is nifty. is it going to crop or stretch?

it crops the image, if the image you upload is smaller than the defined dimensions it will show up in its original size.

create image sizes in the functions.php.

for instance in my functions.php for the theme i am developing it looks like this:

// Add support for thumbnails
set_post_thumbnail_size(540, 300, true);
add_image_size(‘homepage-thumbnail’, 238, 70, true);
add_image_size(‘featured-thumbnail’, 47, 36, true);
add_image_size(‘featured-image’, 598, 187, true);
crop mode

Now if someone uses my theme, they dont have to resize anything. they can upload a 4000x4000 image and if they make it a “featured” post it will auto resize to the themes mandatory size requirements.

does this answer your question?
