Learn how to resize and crop image assets when you download them

Updated over a week ago

You are able to resize or crop images before you download them from Dash.

You have three different options when downloading:

  • Download using a preset size, which can be either a resize or a crop, that has been preconfigured by your Admins and available to all users. See this article for more on preset sizes.

  • Create your own crop at the point of download

  • Create your own resize at the point of download

Cropping an image when downloading

Here's how to crop an image manually when you download (as opposed to using a Preset Size):

  1. On any image asset, select the Download button, then click "Custom download" and then "crop". You'll see a screen like this:

  2. Now you can

    1. Choose whether to free crop or fix the aspect ratio using the padlock icon

    2. Enter the specific crop dimensions or freely drag the selection

    3. Click inside the crop selection area to drag it to a different position

When you're ready, click "Confirm crop", and you'll see a preview of your image in its new dimensions. If you would like to resize the image at this point, you can do so, and then click Download.

Resizing an image when downloading

To resize an image before you download it, choose "Custom crop" from the Download menu, and you will see the resizing sliders. 

Resizing preserves the image's aspect ratio, so adjusting one of the dimensions will adjust the other. To change an image's aspect ratio you may choose to crop the image instead (see above).

About filenames when downloading

Here is some information about how we handle filenames when downloading:

Downloading an original file

When downloading an original file using the "Original" download option, the filename will be exactly the same as the filename of the asset when you uploaded it to Dash, e.g. photo of tree.jpg.

Downloading a preset size

When downloading an asset using a preset size, we append the name of preset to the end of the filename, e.g. photo of tree - Small.jpg.

Downloading a custom size

When downloading an asset using custom dimensions (from the "Custom" download menu option), the chosen image dimensions are appended to the end of the filename, e.g. photo of tree - 478 x 589.jpg.

Downloading in custom sizes from public share pages

It is possible to access the custom and preset download sizes from public share pages such as quick share links, portals and shared collections.

To do this:

  1. Open your public share page

  2. Open a specific asset you'd like to download in a different size (don't click the download button on thumbnail)

  3. In the large asset view page, click the Download button. You will be shown the custom download options.
