With the HubSpot image editor, you can crop or resize an image to better fit your content or social media post. You can also decrease the size of your image to improve image load times for your page, blog, or email. The image editor is available in rich text modules, the file manager tool, and the social composer

Please note: images on HubSpot's responsive pages or emails will scale to fit the width of the module on your page or email. One exception where you may want a larger high-resolution image is for a larger background image.
