The right images will go a long way in communicating your brand persona and helping potential customers understand your products and services. While taking quality photographs and selecting the best images for your site is a good start, getting them to fit properly as part of a cohesive page layout is sometimes easier said than done.

Thankfully, with our convenient image cropping tools, this no longer has to be a problem.

Why Crop Your Images?

Though the text on your website plays an important role in informing and persuading customers, the internet is largely a visual medium. As such, the images you choose will have a powerful impact on the way others perceive your brand.

Quite often, a high-quality photograph will have the right elements you need, but it still needs a little tweaking so that it will look better and be more effective. Cropping is often performed to enhance the focus on the image’s main subject, to adjust the orientation or aspect ratio, or to remove distracting background elements.

Even something as simple as changing the aspect ratio can help the image better fit with the overall site layout. Cropping can also make the final image that is uploaded to your site smaller, which will help the page load faster. The end result is a photo that looks better and enhances site performance.

Birdeye’s Image Cropping System

Here at Birdeye, our website editor gives you the option to crop an image after it has been uploaded to the editor. This allows you to make quick adjustments to the image, such as zooming in on a certain part of the photo or simply cutting out unwanted background elements.

While this may seem like a relatively minor feature, it can have significant benefits as you try to fine-tune your site’s appearance. The simplicity of this system allows you to quickly make any desired adjustments to the images you are uploading to your site, helping you save time for other important business tasks.

Waiting to crop images until after they have been uploaded into our site editor also allows you to preserve the original files on your own computer. This way, you don’t have to worry about a cropping error causing you to permanently lose part of your image! All changes are made on your uploaded copy. The original file is preserved as-is on your device so you can reuse it for other purposes.
