How to edit images using the website builder

When working on images in the website builder, you can edit each image individually. For example, you can create a banner with text, crop an image, or add a filter.

How to go to the image editor

Add the Gallery or Image widget, and upload an image.

If you've selected the Gallery widget, hover over the image you want to use, and click the image editor icon that appears.

If you’ve selected the Image widget next to your image name in the website builder, click the edit icon. You will be redirected to the image editor.

Editor tools available

Using the tools from the left editor panel, you can adjust any picture to your needs:

  • crop an image;
  • flip and rotate an image;
  • draw straight and custom lines;
