Introducing Image Cropping

One popular feature in PBworks is the ability to embed images on wiki pages.  But what happens if you you only want to show part of an image?  This is pretty common, and most people don’t feel comfortable using tools like Photoshop to modify their images.

That’s why we’ve added the ability to “crop” images to PBworks.  Once you’ve uploaded your image, you can use PBworks to trim away the portions of the image you consider unnecessary.

Here’s how it works:

Once you add an image to a wiki page in “Edit” mode, right click and select “Crop Image”

This should bring up a special cropping window where you can drag the cropping selection until you’ve highlighted the part of the image you want to save:

When you click “Crop and Save,” PBworks will crop the image and save the trimmed down image as a new version and return you to the standard Edit window:

You can always access the old version by visiting the File History for that file:

Image cropping is available to all PBworks users of all product editions, paid and free.
