It’s now time to configure the gallery’s image crop settings.

Select your image width and height, check the box to Crop Images? and then select the Crop Position from the selection dropdown.

Your final step is to click Publish or Update on the gallery to save the changes.

A background process will begin and your new images will be created. There may be a slight delay in populating the gallery with the new image size.

Q: Why can’t I see the checkbox to enable cropping for my gallery?

A: Please check your Configuration tab. Make sure you have selected the Default from the Image Size dropdown.

When you select a predetermined image size from the dropdown, this pulls from the image sizes your theme (and any other plugins) as well as the image sizes set in WordPress Admin » Settings » Media, so you must use the Default as the image size if you wish to use Envira’s cropped images.
