Image editor faulty

    I am trying to scale and crop an image.

    I scale the image. I save it. I crop the image. I save it. Everything looks fine, but then when I try and view it, it won't show, and then when I return to the image editor the image won't show there either (I get the little pic telling me there is an image there). I have tried this several times over and over. What is wrong and what can I do to fix it?

    Note also on the "view" url above the size of the image, this is also the wrong size. This is not the cropped size that I saved.

    Thanks,

    Jess

    The blog I need help with is jessandjesus.wordpress.com.

  2. The URL of the image as uploaded appears to be faulty:

    http://jessforjesus.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/img_1220-e1281178652118.jpg

    I don't suppose you could try renaming the file without any underscore or dash and re-uploading it?

    Hi raincoaster - thanks so much for replying!

    Well, I couldn't edit the url in the image editor (unless you know where I can edit the url?), so I uploaded the image from my computer again with the image renamed without an underscore. The image worked fine, and the url stayed the same as ...img1209 (instead of img_1209) until I cropped the image. Then it became ...img1209-jkfnkjn..etc
    and put a dash in there. And of course it didn't work again when I tried to view the image.

    Help!

  4. Hmmm, that shouldn't happen. How, exactly, are you cropping it? I've never tried to crop an image at Wp.com before. I didn't think it was possible.

    In the Media section, clicking on edit, in regards to a picture that has been uploaded, then edit when you reach that picture, brings up the functionality to crop, rotate etc. Have given up and am researching flickr etc.

  6. Well, what I would actually recommend is using an offline editor like Gimp, or a specific site like Picnik.com to edit the images before uploading.

    I don't see those options in my blog.
