Mini MS-Paint in Sitecore

I was looking to my designer to update one Sitecore image and I come to know that he is on leave.

I decided to edit it myself as I can’t wait for a day.

I tried to google some of the image editing tool but to my surprise there is already one image editing tool available in Sitecore.

This is something new to me as a hidden gem in Sitecore. 

If you go to Sitecore desktop and visit to Start -> All Applications -> Image Editor then you will get a mini MS-Paint applications as

You can open any media library image here and can do below functionality

  • Open media library image
  • Crop the image
  • Resize the image
  • Flip image Vertically
  • Flip image Horizontally
  • Rotate 90 degree Right
  • Rotate 90 degree Left
  •  Save the image directly in media library item

Below is a default home page in Sitecore

But after resize, crop, flip horizontally and publishing the homepage image, this is how I get my home page now

Though there is MS-Paint is available in all windows computer which have lots of other features. But this tool allow you to edit directly in media library itself online and without need of any other image editing software. So for me this is a quick and handy tool.

I hope Sitecore provide more and more features in Image Editor in upcoming releases.

I hope you like this quick Sitecore lesson. Stay tuned for more Sitecore related articles.

Till that happy sitecoring :)
