Background Image Cropper

Description

This plugin is a WordPress core feature-plugin that adds cropping to background images for parity with header images. For this particular feature the implementation is quite simple, but it’s starting out as a plugin to gauge user interest in this feature and whether the feature improves the user experience of background images.

This plugin requires WordPress 4.3 Beta 3 or later.

Reviews

Very good!

This plugin helps users a lot!
Congratulations to the developer for the idea and execution of this idea! Success! 🙂

MUCH NEEDED! Thank you!

Thank you for working on this plugin and considering it for core in WP 4.7+. I’ve been hoping for a solution to allow me to crop a specific section of very large images to use as a background on pages or sections – and as long as this one doesn’t remove or overwrite the original image file, it will make it easy to use multiple cropped sections from the same source image throughout different sections of my site.

I’m very grateful and hopeful for this plugin!
