Resizing an image
The middle column in Silva is 504 pixels wide. The side columns are roughly 200+ pixels.
However, for a site to download quickly, it's best NOT to have images larger than 500kb. Please resize the images before putting them on Silva.
If an image is a bit too large either in scale, you can resize it within Kupu.
- Ensure you are in editing mode on the relevant page.
- Click on the image to select it and a Toolbox will open on the right-hand side.
- Click on the edit image... link- A NEW TAB WILL OPEN IN YOUR BROWSER.
- To make the image smaller you can change the percentage in the text box next to scaling.
- To make the image smaller using pixels, type in the pixels e.g. 100x75 or 250x175.
- If you are not sure how to do the ratio, you can type 100x* where the * will calculate the correct ratio. Alternatively, you can type *x100.
- Click 'change'.
Note: The change will NOT be visible until you Save and Preview the page.
