Sizing Custom Images

By default, the image size will be limited by the file dimensions. You can change the size of the image by clicking the Change size button in the image menu to specify dimensions.

Additionally, there is special handling for the custom_image variable that allows you to control the exact width and height. The variable looks like this: {% custom_image #_label %}

The image # refers to the order in which the image was uploaded to your Image Library. The label refers to the Label name entered for the image in the Image Library.

To specify the image dimensions, add the following information to the variable: {% custom_image #_label | image_size: 'WxH' %}

Specify the pixels for the width (W) and height (H). For example: {% custom_image 1_shippingeasy | image_size: '10x20' %}
