Finally, just to remind you two possibilties very handy on your CMS when you add a picture in an article.

1 / The crop feature
Once the picture has been added to your paragraph, you can edit the frame of the thumbnail. Simply click on the thumbnail, an ibox opens and a crop window allows you to keep the proportions of the photo, while choosing the part of the picture you're interested in.

2 / Your own thumbnail
It is possible that the
six default sizes offered are not sufficient for you to realize your dream design. In this case, you can always add your own thumbnail. The application does not generate the various sizes for your personal thumbnail. It keeps it the way you've uploaded it and uses it directly in the modules concerned.
