Image crop missing zoom tools - am I missing something?

The UI I see when I edit an image isn’t the same as on

I don’t see any option to zoom. I can slide the box around but I can’t adjust the scale.

What gives?

Hello Ben!

It seems like the documentation needs to be updated. You’re seeing the old image editor. The new tool is called Imgix and is automatically implemented to all images being delivered through the Prismic API. In your writing room you should see something like this:


This new feature works slightly different than the old process in that you can not zoom out past the original dimensions of an image to create a larger white canvas. You can still resize an image by setting the image dimensions to your required size, these modifications are done by changing the setting of the Image field in the Custom type builder.


@paulina.gavilan How are you zooming there on the top example?

@marcello You zoom in with your mouse or TouchPad.
