There are many reasons why you should consider cropping images that are added to the slideshow or generally around your website including:

  • Improving the overall compostion of the image
  • Allowing the focus to be on the main subject within the image
  • Allowing you to remove distracting elements
  • Allowing you to change the orentation of the image

Images that appear in the slideshow on your site (if you have one) should also be cropped to ensure that they are the correct size and not pixelated or blurred. This can happen if the image uploaded is smaller than the slideshow area, meaning that the image has to be enlarged to fit (see below).

If an image is the wrong size or shape, it may also cause parts of the image which you want to appear on the sideow to be cut off and not displayed (see below).
