When adding media from Cloudinary, Sitefinity CMS uses the Cloudinary Media Library widget. For more information on the widget, refer to the Cloudinary documentation Digital Asset Management (DAM)

IMPORTANT: To use media from Cloudinary in related media custom fields, you must use the default source for this site or all sources. For more information, see Add a Related media custom field.

Crop Cloudinary images 

You can crop images that come from your Cloudinary library by creating a thumbnail profile. For more information, see Thumbnails

To create custom image crops, you must determine an area of interest of the image in Cloudinary. For more information, refer to Cloudinary’s documentation Analysis tab

When the area of interest has been determined in Cloudinary, Sitefinity CMS focuses on that area when the image is cropped.
