    [Hands-On: Image Styles] [with Addison Berry]
  • 0:12
    So to let our site fans upload images and make sure they're not gonna break our site,
  • 0:17
    we want to automatically resize those
  • 0:19
    so they could just upload whatever they need
  • 0:21
    and then make it all work magically for them.
  • 0:24
    So in this lesson we're going to create our first image style.
  • 0:28
    And we'll be using scale and crop and see how that effect works.
  • 0:33
    And then we'll finish up by looking at how we can improve the image quality a little bit as well.

Hands-On: Image Styles


Before we can nicely publish our favorite bands’ photos on our website, we need to make sure to set up image styles, in order to create scaled-down versions of the images while leaving the original images intact. In this lesson we'll modify an existing image style to customize it, and also see how we can improve our image quality.
