Edit photo

The photo editing tool enables you to crop or rotate a photo. It does this without altering the original photo, which means you can reset the crop or rotation later on without any image loss.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll down to Website Builder and select Manage next to the website you want to change.
  3. Select Edit Site.
  4. Select the photo you want to replace.
    • To add or replace your cover image or color background (the first section on your Home page), click or tap anywhere in the section. When the Header panel opens, click Cover Media.
      Select header, then Cover Media
    • Anywhere else on your site, select the image. (You can't do this in some sections, such as the map in Contact Us, or in the Footer sections.)
  5. Edit the photo.
    • Drag the slider to adjust how the image is cropped. To reposition the crop, click and drag the image within the window.
    • In some cases, use the dot to set the photo's focus point. The focus point dot helps if a device's display doesn't match the image's proportions, and some of the image gets cropped.
    • Select the diamond with a curled arrow in the upper right if you want to rotate an image. Each click rotates the image 90 degrees clockwise; repeat as needed.
    • Use the black and white toggle to create a dramatic effect.
  6. Use the Describe this image box to create alt text (or alternative text). Describe what the image is about as if you weren't able to see the image, such as for site visitors using screen readers or slower connections. Alt text also improves your page's search engine rank.
  7. When you finish editing everything, select Done.
  8. Your changes are saved automatically. When you're ready to make the changes public, remember to publish your site.
