Editing Image Sizing

    Is there a way in FLEX to edit/adjust the size of an image? 
    In classic you used to be able to play around with the sizing of an image you used on the website/emails (editing width/height px to desired size). This was helpful to matching all partner logos to the same size. 

    I am not seeing anywhere on FLEX where I have the ability to do this. Is this the case?

    Hello Natalia, 

    You're correct, there's no way to change the size of the picture directly in Flex, since content is now dynamic (changes size with the size of the screen the website is seen on). What you could do is either edit your pictures before uploading them, or use the different structures of the section widget, such as number of columns, to ensure the images all have equal space to take.

    Correct, that feature is removed :( Your best bet is to size them in an actual design program with vector files to ensure quality isn't lost or you can use a cheap program like SnagIt if you only get .pngs/.jpgs. It makes it beyond quick and easy to do things.

    😞 I'm so disappointed they did away with that capability completely. I know the pages are meant to be responsive but currently I am not finding that it's posing more challenges than benefits in getting our websites to look how we want them to. 

    Are there any free programs out there that I could leverage for vector files? I've been re-zing JPEG/PNGs on Paint (not ideal but it does the trick) but I'm stuck with some of the vector files partners provide.

    I have been keeping a pretty detailed list of image sizes that I will be requesting for our future event image requirements. Additionally, I will be sending these to Cvent.

    That's an excellent idea Lindsey - I will start doing the same for my team. 
    It's unfortunate it'll cause a bit more work on our end vs simplifying the process; now if I ask a partner for a logo I would have to send to our print/digital department to re-size to the 2 -3 sizes I'll need vs being able to do it myself within Cvent. 

    So far, doing it myself with what free resources I have found hasn't provided the quality level we are looking for.

    Hi Natalia, 

    You are so right! It is frustrating that this was taken away and even though I get the dynamic sizing, it doesn't always work as well as being able to just set the image size. 

    We use a lot of spacers and column widgets to set the sizing on our pages so images all take up the same space. It works for the most part, but more work to implement. 

    Try this program for resizing your vector images: https://inkscape.org/ I've used it for similar projects and the free version is pretty good for the basics. 

    Best,
