I have a Wordpress theme which require 4 images sizes:

  • small: 960x535
  • medium: 1380x770
  • large: 1920x1071
  • full: 2240x1361

Is there a way to crop the featured image into these sizes so I can use them in my PHP and HTML?


You need to define other sizes with this function

  • I was told I could not use this function because a user needs to select the size they want to use and I basically need all of 'em – J. Doe Jul 20 '16 at 12:58

  • I assume user need to have option to select the size while inserting image using Media Library, in that case: premium.wpmudev.org/blog/… – rzepak Jul 20 '16 at 13:02
  • @rzepak so that blog says the image sizes are already created with these sizes by default, hmm I will look into it – J. Doe Jul 20 '16 at 13:08


add_image_size ('new-name', 220, 180, true);

in your functions.php file and use

the_post_thumbnail ('new-name'); 

where you want cropped image. This will give you image of size 220x180 size image.
