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).

An image which has been increased in size to fit the slideshow area, causing it to become pixelated.

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).

  • Latest Live - March 2020

    March has been an unprecedented month of uncertainty, anxiety and a whole change of routine. It's also been a month of strength, solidarity, community and support - especially in the education sector. 

    We have seen so many cheering stories across social media and on school websites of positive ways that our children are learning from home - whether it's through creative outlets; art, woodwork and music, incredible cakes and bakes, workout routines, school-wide reading sessions, virtual assemblies, sing-along sessions and more. 

    Thank you to all of the Heads, SLT, teachers and support staff within schools & trusts who are navigating these unusual times with positivity, strength and grace. Your commitment and dedication to your students is clear for all to see and is, as always, inspiring.

    We would like to remind anyone who needs assistance with their school website, that we are at the end of the phone or email should you need us for anything.

    We hope that all of our customers and indeed, anyone reading this post, stay safe and well.


    Below are a small selection of the fantastic websites we've launched recently. Congratulations to all 16 of our customers who went live this month with their new school websites.
