Cannot crop image from URL


  • When I insert an image from a URL the crop function is grayed out. Is this normal? I have no problem cropping an image from my hard drive. I can re-size images from URLs... just can't crop them.

  • This is correct behaviour because all you are doing when inserting a web image is hotlinking to the original. If you wanted to crop it, you would have to save the original image, then insert it into your blog post as a local image.
