I am using "The 411 Pro" theme and am running into an image manipulation issue that has plagued me for some time.
My client has supplied the originals from a photo shoot she did. The original picture has her mostly centered so I am attempting to crop or resize the photo to properly place her in the open space on the right.
Please see: http://www.rockitcc.com/
As you can see, I am pretty close, but I can't seem to move her down a little bit. There is still more photo above what you see so I'm not sure where/how that is controlled.
1. So specific to this theme, are there any further controls I have to tune image placement?
2. In general, can someone point me to a resource that can help get me up to speed on image manipulation for websites? I typically use SnagIt and Gimp to get desired results, but since the client owns the original photos, I would love to leverage the high resolution if possible.
I am having the same issue. The photos my client has sent me are rectangular with the long side being vertical rather than horizontal. What dimensions did you end up using for yours?
I haven't made any changes yet as I haven't really found any useful solutions to date. It doesn't seem to matter what size I make the original.
FWIW, I am able to use SnagIt to create a new shape of the photo which does help with positioning - the major downside to this is that resolution is greatly compromised. So at this point I'm staying with the high resolution photo that is a little off-kilter vs. a crappy looking picture in the exact location I want it. Your results may vary.
We used Photoshop to edit our photo. The size dimensions we used are 800 X 550. We put a bit of space between the top of our client's head and the top of the photo so that her head wouldn't be cut off. Because she gave us a tall photo rather than a long photo so we used another photo of hers to fill in the blank space and then blurred it which worked out because the blur falls under the text areas.
Hope that helps 🙂
