Because of a conflict with the progressive design stylesheet we’re using, which adjusts the size of your web page to the visitor’s screen size, the ability to scale a photo within the CommonSpot image dialog box has been turned off. This means that, while you can add a border or space around an image through CommonSpot image tools, you can no longer resize (scale) from this feature. Images and graphics need to be sized correctly before being placed on your web page.
For those of you who don’t use PhotoShop, Becky has created a great tutorial introducing two FREE online photo editors that are super easy to use–even for beginners!
iPiccy requires no registration and is easy to use for cropping a picture or resizing. fotoflexer doesn’t require you to join or register, either, and has many fun special effects. For a great explanation, see this Simple Image Editing–
For those Mac or Windows users who decide to try either of these editors, please Yam your experiences using either eidtor on the CommonSpot User Yammer Group.
