Images are an important part of a website, you must take care to balance the textual content of your website with some visual elements. Besides, a page with pictures or images is also very appealing to the eye of the viewer.
With the cPanel Image Manager you can view and modify images in your account as well as change the size of the images and convert their file type.
To access the Image Manager
You can now access the Thumbnailer, Image Scaler and Convert Image Format tools:
This tool allows users to create smaller, thumbnail-sized versions of all images in a defined directory of a website. Why exactly would you want small images? The bigger and image is, the more bandwidth it uses. You really should not have high-res or ultra high-res images on your website unless your website is about high-res photos.
The Thumbnailer application can only be applied to an entire directory and cannot be used on individual images.
How to convert images to thumbnails
5. Once you are done, click Thumbnail Images
After the Image Manager has finished resizing the images, a thumbnails directory will be created in the selected folder with the prefix tn_.
This tool will let users change the size of an individual image in degrees of percentage either up or down.
Rescaling an Image
6. Once you have finished, click Scale Image
The next screen should provide you with a link to view the newly scaled image.
Convert Image Format (jpg,gif,bmp,etc)
Sometimes you have to convert the format of some images to another so they can be viewable with certain programs. Like the Thumbnailer, this tool cannot work on individual images, only directories.
How to convert an image:
The new files should be found in the same directory as the original by default once the process is complete.
