Image Resize

    I have around 500 images in my media library and this is just the beginning….
    I really, really don’t want to have do do my borders in photoshop, so please add the border features etc. back to the image details box.
    As you well know, we on can’t use plugins. Is this some kind of forewarning of impending paid for upgrades?



    Hi there,

    Details on the plugin can be found here:

    I have asked the developers if this will be merged. At the moment I have not heard back. I will let you know as soon as possible!



    arg ! why did I install the 3.9 ! now the resizing tools is horrible and i’m losing a lot of time to resize. Please go back with the percentage resize, make thinks simpler , would be nice


    sorry gracejiyoung – I should have said – I am on and I understand this does not allow plug-ins. Am I wrong?


    Just updated wordpress to 3.9 and got the same problem. i think older version is better


    About resize, since WP put again the pixel quantity it is a little better, but nobody speak about the desapearance of «more colors» in the Text Colors. I use to put colors in my text to emphase some words, specially names and now it is really limited and I don’t understand why they took it away. Please can’t you put it back?



    This is the so NOT user friendly for those of us who don’t understand code!


    Exactly!!! I don’t understand codes, so I used WP because it was so easy to me to work my pics… that are a lot, and now I took me twice the time resizing them, and it is frustrating.

    How many more complains do you need to go back to the old version?
    Or maybe they want we beg them?

    (Sorry but this is really frustrating)


    Somebody read my last question? Please put back the «more colors» in the tex color box! And about the plug-ins, I don’t know how to install it!
    so it is the responsability of those who built WP to provide the costumers – US! – with proper tools, as it was before!



    the plug-in is certainly very good, but coment can I do with a blog for borders?


    Formerly files (media) were automatically attached to post/articles.
    I suppose it is since last change in WordPress, I have to attach them manually.
    Did I have to change an option somewhere to have these media attached automatically to articles ?
    I have this problem only when media are attached to article using a smartphone. From a computer it works correctly.
    Thanks for support.



    How on earth removing the old user friendly image editing system is progress is beyond me. Please reinstate the quick and easy way of adding padding, borders and resizing.



    Hi there,

    I have great news. :) Our developers have added border and margin options to the Advanced Options as seen in the screenshot below:

    Cheers and Happy Blogging!



    Thank you.



    Thanks for being in touch about this quickly, Grace. It is great news! I look forward to using these options again!


    Very very good!

    thank you very much


    Hello, Grace,
    have you any answer about the missing «more colors» in the text color box? That is, from the beginning what bother me because I use colors in the text ans now it is rather limited. Sorry for my english I am from Portugal



    That is good progress.

    There is one bug that has been there since the change but should be fairly easy to fix.

      If you have an image that is correctly sized on the page say at 562×324 and you edit it to change the caption or anything else, it reverts to the full size of the underlying image which might be 1024×591.
      When you go to Edit Image/ Scale image the default values are 1024×591 rather than 562×324.
      I presume it is simply a matter of populating these text boxes with the correct default values to solve this problem.

    It’s annoying for me but I have an Excel Utility to recalculate the value; for those who don’t know what is going on it must be most disturbing.



    These improvements are wonderful…if only I could get to them. I STILL have the problem where I click on “ADD MEDIA” and I get NOTHING. What is the solution to this?



    Hi there,


    Our developers have stated that they are not looking into bringing back “More colors” option. This change, along with some of the other editor changes, was part of a design and usability overhaul that was discussed at some length by WordPress core developers.

    It’s possible we may build in new ways to change text color in the future, but for now, you can update the hex color code in your Text Editor once you have changed the color to one of the standard options.

    @murrayfoote @trmusgrave-

    Can you please open up a new thread as this is getting very long – it’s difficult for users to go through all the pages to find an answer. We’d like to troubleshoot this without adding to this thread.

    Thank you so much and sorry for the inconvenience.
