This tool allows you to select a custom crop for any image inserted or uploaded into Kinja. You can select either a 16:9 crop or a custom ratio.

Videos and gifs cannot be cropped.

Step 1 - Upload your image

Step 2 - Click on the image to trigger the inline toolbar, and click on the new crop icon


Step 3 - Choose the aspect ratio you’d like to use, and resize your crop as desired

16:9 is the ratio we use for recirculation modules on our websites. If you want to use the custom crop option, just be aware that your image may look different in recirc modules.


The cropper will alert you if the image size you are choosing is too small.


Step 4 - Click “Crop” and your newly cropped image will appear in the editor!
