Photo Editor: Resize using templates

Falcon.io supports multiple networks, each of them with their own recommended media properties. Sometimes, it's best to publish a photo in 16:9 or 3:4, and for other kinds of content it's better to go for a 1:1 ratio. We collected our suggestions and best practices for file attachments here, but we thought to simplify the process by creating some presets in our photo editor.

By using the Falcon photo editor, you can easily resize and crop your images to perfectly fit the requirements of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram.

How to use a Template to resize an image

  1. In the Publish Post Editor, upload your image file to your post.
  2. Move the mouse over the thumbnail of the image under the textbox left, and click 'Edit'.
  3. The photo editor will open in the Transform section.
  4. Find the correct format. They are organized in sections per network. blobid0.jpg
  5. Click on the chosen format. You can see the pre-selected width and height in the bottom-left corner. You can always edit them if you prefer bigger or smaller dimensions.
  6. Click 'Export' in the top-right corner.

How to use Custom crop to resize an image

If you want to customize your crop to something different than the presets, you can always freely choose your own crop as well. 

  1. In the Publish Post Editor, upload your image file to your post.
  2. Move the mouse over the thumbnail of the image under the textbox left, and click 'Edit'.
  3. The photo editor will open in the Transform section.
  4. Select the 'Custom' transform.
  5. Select the crop area.
  6. Check the box 'Lock resolution'. This assures that the width and height ratio of the image are maintained. blobid1.jpg
  7. Alter the width or height in number of pixels. The other one automatically adjusts with the number you set so that the same ratio is maintained.
  8. Click 'Export' in the top-right corner.
