How To Edit Images within WordPress

Image editing for WordPress

Back in those days, we had all the time to work on Photoshop. Now, with the kind of pace bloggers work pumping out stories in hundreds, there is no time to edit with Photoshop. Canva is a better and quicker online alternative to Photoshop. But that again, needs its time.

How about when you have to grab an image off the internet and publish it fast within WordPress? Or upload an original photo straight from your mobile phone and blog about it? It’s be great if there was an image editor available on WordPress, isn’t it?

I’m sure the WordPress community is working on it, but for the mean time, here are some ways to edit images right within WordPress.

Basic cropping and rotation can be done with WordPress (in case you didn’t know that.)

But for advanced image editing you need a plugin like Vectr.

Vectr is a free image editing plugin for WordPress which makes it easy to edit images and create powerful vector graphics right in the edit screen of your WordPress page or post.

This plugin will let you edit uploaded images, add text, draw lines (vector like) and other cool image editing. Of course not as amazing as Photoshop but gets the work done and save a whole lot of time. Love it!
