Our company use Miro for Fashion Design and create a lot of boards that use JPG or PNG for visuals rather than Miros shapes/stickies.
Once we drag and drop into Miro images are all different sizes, which have to be manually resized.
We use A LOT of images 500+ so this is very time consuming!
p.s love miro

If you just shift-click and select all the images, you can then resize them as a group…
Thanks for your help!
When you select an image, you are presented with an option to change its size:
And there’s another option in ellipsis of the context menu to Scale to original size (which is greyed out if the image is already scaled to original):
So, you can do a Shift + drag as
@Kiron Bondale suggests, filter out any non-images, and scale them all or original.
If you do create a Wish List Idea post, I would also recommend that you post a link to it back here, so that future readers of this post can quickly get to and vote for your Idea.
Lastly, don't forget to vote for your own Idea.
Custom Web-plugin using SDK
You could also explore if this would be possible using the Miro Developer Platform to create a custom web-plugin to accomplish what you are looking for. You would probably want someone with a development background to review the developer platform documentation.
SDK can read-only width and height on an image, but it cannot write width and height independent of one-another, it can only write (update) an image’s scale. … in other words it cannot change the aspect ratio - but can scale 1 or many images to 1 or many scales... so… indeed →
the Miro SDK can automate a mass-update to image(s) ‘scale’
Example 1: All images are from the same original source, making it easy to rescale/keep same scale when highlighting all.
Example 2: Images from different sources upload at different scales making it arduous to go through and manually rescale to be same size.
All images are generally same ratio 1:1 and if not we usually will manually resize/crop anyway to curate our Concept Boards.
Thanks all much appreciated!
@Max Harper - a possible solution/workaround just keeps getting better...
oh man… I think I posted that too soon… Paste from clipboard works.
It looks like the actual feature of ‘copy to clipboard’ is … can’t do it “(yet)”
Here’s an OK option in the realm I was suggesting.
A couple steps in the process - but its still copy paste.
Then copy to clipboard.
Paste into miro.
Maybe get all the images and process them in bulk with a minimum of clicky-clicky with
imagemagikAspect ratio is preserved. Whew.
On a Mac:
$ file setup-0.png
setup-0.png: PNG image data, 612 x 792, 8-bit colormap, non-interlaced
$ convert setup-0.png -resize 100x100 setup-0.png
$ file setup-0.png
setup-0.png: PNG image data, 77 x 100, 8-bit colormap, non-interlaced
I know, won’t work for ad-hoc, would be nice to shift-select and actually resize.
But you can do this to a whole directory of files and not think too hard about it ever again.
Found a moment tonight to build the plugin.
I think this functionality could extend quite usefully to resizing of a number of other items…
What other items should it resize and how ?
What else should it do?
Direct message me for a link to test it out.
What would happen with Text, seeing as they are sized by font? I suppose the answer here is the “copy style” option.
What about Frames?
I agree with
@Robert Johnson Stickies/Text are easy to resize. Frames would definitely be great to resize.
One other thing from my side:
Is there a way of saving templates so we can use them season after season? We have created some fantastic Miros that we use season after season, currently we have to copy & paste the previous season Miro and then delete all info so we can then populate with new season information/imagery. Similar to how you would save an Illustrator/InDesign template and then open up the saved down template to start fresh.
Thanks for everyone’s help
I’ll look into adding the discussed features when I get a moment. I’ll also change the icon.
Is it possible to pass this plugin to Miro so we can install officially from Miro’s side? Our company cannot install 3rd party plugin’s due to safety/privacy rules.
We have a Miro manager for our company who is also looking into this.
Thanks again for your help.
Super respect that. We’re very big on privacy and security. →
I’m wondering is this link still working..?
I have downloaded the chrome extension, and reopened Miro. Then clicked the extension but it seems to be a video recording application.
What you have in this video is exactly what I need. https://youtu.be/WwnDqJHpDHs
I am assuming its something I'm doing wrong.
Miro (not this Miro lol)
/anyone else viewing this post: we can only share not-yet-on-the-Miro-marketplace apps via a direct message. Please DM me and I’ll send you the Miro Plugin install link.
Cheers :) max
Has anyone installed the image resizer for the board/team?
It is working for me but my colleagues can’t access the app
