2. Edit the Featured Image

When you’ll add a new Featured Image or edit an existing one, there will be a new option “Crop Featured Image“. Click it, and there you can crop the image and save the cropping area for a specific image size from the theme.

3. Crop & Save

In this step, you can select the image size you want to edit, select a new cropping area and click the Save Crop button.

If you’re not sure what is the name used for a specific section in your theme just ask our support team.
