    I have uploaded some pictures that I want to use in my blog. I would also like to crop and rotate one of the pictures. These are jpeg pictures. I have tried using the edit feature in the upload media section, and also in the insert image when writing my blog. I click save after editing my picture, and also update media, but the picture is still uncropped and unrotated.

    What have I misunderstood?

    The blog I need help with is: thedarkeststar.wordpress.com


    Please paste the URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your username to your blog (as explained in the sticky “8 Things to Know Before Posting”). We can’t help without that.

    In my Media Library, clicking the “Edit Image” button (on the media edit screen) does display a page which includes scale, thumbnail, crop and rotation functions.

    A variety of problems occur when I try to use this page, but it exists.


    @likethebike: Thanks! That’s a very recent change, and I wasn’t aware of it…


    There are a bunch of changes. In the edit post page and edit page page, it now sends deleted things to the “trash” where you can recover them. You actually have to go the trash to delete them permanently.
