When your members sign up, they do one very important thing (sometimes in haste), which can come to define how other members will think of them forever more: upload a profile photo. Most people do a great job of uploading their avatar, but what if that image isn’t cropped the way they intended or hoped?
Need to crop your avatar image to make it fit the space or emphasize an important detail in the image? Now, you can.
We’re happy to report that we’ve added a new tool to the member sign-up flow that allows members to crop their photos. This cropping tool allows your members to choose a square portion of their uploaded image and cut out everything else. It doesn’t change the resolution of the uploaded image. In fact, it saves the original image so your members can re-crop a photo or “start over” again (and again) if they wish. This tool works for existing avatars, too.
It’s a simple tool, but one that will undoubtedly help your members present themselves in the way they want to be presented.
