Can I crop my photo thumbnails?

Tease and tantalize your fans so they can't resist clicking on your photos.

Do it by zooming in on the most interesting part of your photo. When they click on the thumbnail, they'll see the rest of the picture.

Zooming thumbnails

The Easiest Way

Legacy SmugMug  In your gallery settings?, you'll see a Thumbnails option. Toggle that to yes, and all photos in that gallery will automagically get a zoomed in, square thumbnail.  Or, use the Adjust Thumbnails option in the Tools Menu to pick and choose which thumbnails are made square.

New SmugMug  In the gallery settings, you will see Square Thumbnails option.  Set that to yes.  Or go to your Organizer and select the gallery.  Then click the wrench button and select Adjust Thumbnails.  


A bit more picky?

To choose exactly what part of your photo will be in the thumbnail, make sure you're logged in. Select Crop Thumbnail from the Tools Menu. Here's what you'll see:

Cropping thumbnails

Click a corner of the crop box and drag to adjust the size of the box. Click near the center of the box and drag to move the crop area around.

Click Save Crop. That's all there is to it.

We'll generate a new thumbnail for your gallery, but in the meantime you can click on the arrows in the tool to proceed to a different image to crop.
