Images which are uploaded to your website through a field (ie, images which are not included in a text area) may be cropped after they are uploaded. If an image is unusable in its current form, you will be prompted via a red popup window to crop the image. 

  1. After uploading an image, click on the Crop button or select a style to crop in the Manual Crop list.
