Last updated on January 5, 2023 @ 1:21 pm

Nowadays, most people use some form of online photo editing software to make basic changes to their photos. For example, they might want to crop or resize a photo, or add a filter or some text.

Wix is a popular website builder that lets users create a website for free. It also has an online photo editor called Wix Photo Editor. In this article, we’ll show you how to edit photos on Wix.


Exciting update! We've collaborated with Wix to offer WBI users with a free plan for all website creation needs - Explore the details here.

Step 1: To start, go to and create an account. Once you’re logged in, click on the “Create New Site” button.

Step 2: On the next page, you’ll be asked to choose a template for your website. For the purposes of this article, we’ll choose the “Blank” template.

Step 3: Once you’ve chosen a template, you’ll be taken to the Wix Editor. This is where you can edit your website and add content. To add a photo to your website, click on the “Add/Change Photo” button in the top left-hand corner of the screen.

Step 4: On the next page, you can either upload a photo from your computer or choose one from Wix’s library of free stock photos. For this example, we’ll upload a photo from our computer. Click on the “Upload Photo” button and select the image you want to upload.

Step 5: Once your photo is uploaded, you can edit it using Wix Photo Editor. To access the editor, click on the “Edit” button in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Step 6: In the editor, you can crop or resize your photo, add filters or effects, and even add text. To crop or resize your photo, click on the “Crop/Resize” tab in the top menu.

To add a filter or effect, click on the “Filters/Effects” tab. And to add text, click on the “Text” tab.

PRO TIP: If you are not careful, editing photos on Wix can result in some serious problems. First off, if you are not familiar with the software, you could easily make your photos look worse instead of better. Secondly, if you do not know what you are doing, you could end up losing important data or even damaging your computer.
