WordPress 2.9 gets an image editor

WordPress 2.9 image editor

This summer the folks at Automattic asked users what features they’d most like to see in the next version of the popular WordPress blogging client. one of the most popular suggestions was image editing, and now it looks lke the developers are beginning to add image editing capabilities to WordPress.

The image editor will be baked into WordPress 2.9 and won’t require a plugin. The editing functions are pretty basic. You’ll be able to crop, resize, and rotate images. Don’t expect support for advanced effects, layers, or other features, at least not right away. But the ability to upload your images before editing them should make blogging a bit faster and easier for many users.
