Adjusting image crop positioning in Wix


Ever wonder how to size your images for backgrounds or Strip Images in Wix?

As a Wix Website Designer, here are my tips:

Because the full width Strip Images in Wix scale to different sized screen widths, there is no “best” size, as they crop differently depending on the size of the browser window. You can control, however, the position of the image in the crop, so you can crop top down, left/right, down up. See my attached screenshot on where to find this setting.

That said, wide images work better than tall ones, and sizing them to 1920 pixels wide by 900 +/- pixels high works best to keep your image resolution quality high. I often re-crop my images various ways and test them out in Wix to find what one fits best based on the content, so be patient and test different crop proportions and height sizes to see what works best in the design.


As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier. As part of my website design services, I train clients on how to update their websites or to do their own SEO (search engine optimization), so I post many of these tips for my clients to train them how to use Wix and other tools to keep their website up-to-date. Keeping websites current is the best way to get found and to keep people coming back to your website.
