Lots of images in the Webex Events Platform must be square (1:1 aspect ratio), just like in social media profiles. When you upload rectangular images to the Webex Events Platform, the system automatically squares them after uploading. This stretches the image — and we want to help you design a beautiful app!

This article shows you how to easily add padding to a non-square image so you can use it as an icon or logo in the Webex Events Platform without stretching it.

How to square an image

First, head to https://imageresizer.com/image-enlarger and click the Select Image button. Locate and select the image you want to square on your device.

On the next page, make sure the By Dimensions tab is selected. Click the lock icon between the Width and Height fields so the lock appears unlocked, and make sure the Fill Color box is checked.

Click the Fill Color swatch and select white (Hex code FFFFFF) or another color you prefer.

Review the Width and Height values. Whichever one is higher, replace the lower one with it. In the example image above, Width is the highest value at 452, so we'd change the Height to 452, also. Then click Enlarge Image. The image automatically downloads to your device.

That's it! Now you can get back to uploading images into the Webex Events Platform! 🔼
