Resolver los problemas de imágenes recortadas

Many images on your site will crop either horizontally, vertically, or both. This helps your images look their best within your site's layout and in different browser sizes.

This guide will help you understand the normal cropping that happens in Squarespace and learn how to minimize it as much as possible.

Tip: To crop the original image, use the Image Editor or third party software.

Understanding cropping

Every image on your site is in a container, which is an invisible box that controls how the image displays in relation to other content on the page. When an image is loaded into a container, one of two things happens, depending on the container's settings:

  • Most of the time - The image conforms to the container's dimensions, which vary based on browser width. If the image isn't the same shape as the container, the image crops to fill the container completely.
  • Sometimes - The container’s shape conforms to the dimensions of the image so the whole image displays.

In most cases, images on your site display within the containers' dimensions, and will experience some cropping. This helps images look their best while adapting to different browser sizes.


Bloques de imágenes

Image Blocks display images at their original height and width ratio, within your site's layout restrictions.


  • Crop the image with the cropping handle. To reset the image to its original dimensions, double-click the cropping handle.
  • After cropping, use the focal point to center the image.
  • Make the image smaller by adding Spacer Blocks on either side.

Secciones de galería y Páginas de galería

Según qué versión de Squarespace usa tu sitio, el sitio tendrá distintas opciones de galería.

Upload and manage images directly in the gallery section, then use the Gallery tab to control how images display. 

Para informarte mejor, visita Secciones de galería en la versión 7.1.

How images appear in your Gallery Page depends on your template. Visit your template's guide to learn how images might crop to fit your Gallery Page’s design.

Bloques de Galería

How images display in a Gallery Block depends on the format: Slideshow, Grid, Carousel, or Stacked.


  • For any format, resize the whole block by adding Spacer Blocks on either side.
  • Slideshow - The gallery’s height is set by the widest image. To avoid cropping or blank space around images, use images with similar aspect ratios.
  • Grid - In the Design tab, use the aspect ratio to crop all images to the same shape, and change the number of thumbnails per row to change their size. Use the focal point to adjust how each image centers.
  • Carousel - Adjust the height with the cropping handle.
  • Stacked - Each image expands to fill the width of the page or column the block is in.

Portfolio and Index Pages

Las Páginas de portafolio y de índice son tipos distintos de páginas en diferentes versiones de Squarespace, pero funcionan de manera similar:

Hover over a Portfolio section to add an image, then use the Gallery tab to control how it displays.

How images appear in an Index Page depends on your template. Visit your template's guide to learn more.

Páginas de Productos

How cropping affects product images depends on which version of Squarespace your site is on.

After uploading images to your store sections, use the Product Items tweaks to style them:

  1. En el Menú de Inicio, haz clic en Diseño.
  2. Haz clic en Elementos del producto.

Experiment with different style tweaks to set how your product images display.

How your product images crop on the landing page depends on your template's Products Page type.


  • In Site Styles, use the Product Image Auto Crop tweak to choose whether the images crop to the same shape, or display at their original shapes.
  • If you're cropping, use the Product Item Size tweak to set the shape.
  • Use the focal point to adjust where the image centers.
  • If you're not cropping, use the Product Overlay Color tweak to choose the color that displays behind the image.
  • Para obtener más ayuda, visita Cómo modificar el estilo de páginas de productos



  • The Advanced Products Page always crops images to the same shape. This helps give your page a cohesive look and feel.
  • To set the shape for all images on your Products Page, use the Image Aspect Ratio tweak in the Products: Layout section of Site Styles.
  • Use the focal point to adjust where the image centers.

Páginas de Portada

La versión 7.1 no admite Páginas de portada.

Cover Pages will always crop to some degree, especially on mobile. The amount of cropping depends on the height of the image, the width of the browser, and the layout you've chosen.
