Hi Oleksandra,

 

When you upload your image, you will see a preview which is in a cropped, square size. There is also an edit icon there that will prompt you to adjust the cropped square. If you ignore the edit icon and don't edit the crop, you can publish your portfolio and the images will be displayed in the original ratio (not a square). Please try uploading your image again and let us know if you're able to publish the image in the original size, without cropping it. 

Let me know if you experience the same problem after this, thank you.

Oh, no (
My portfolio looks great when I open it.
But the cover image displays cutted as after editing (like square).

It's scaled. You can try uploading with 1:1 ratio of the original image.

Or, don't. Your portfolio looks great as is. I see an enticing image which makes me click on it. Nothing to fix.

I think it looks not professional when it cutted like this (see attached photos).

Than try the first option?

Create an 1:1 image and upload that one.
When scaled, it will retain all parts of the image.

I've been trying for 2 days to upload an image to my portfolio. No matter how I resize it it keeps cropping.

I've tried not editing the thumbnail, resizing to the proportion of the window, changing the pixel dimensions, nothing works. Why?

No matter how I resize an image it still gets cropped in the published version after I upload it.

Hi Peter,

 

The frame for portfolio images is horizontal. That's why the recommended dimensions have more pixels for width than for height (1000px width x 750px height is recommended). You could try different pictures, that's horizontal or rework current images to add borders to those and make them horizontal. To learn more about portfolios, check this help article.
