Set or remove a focal point

Note

To configure Sitecore Content Hub, you must either be a superuser or have the necessary permissions granted to you through user group policies.

A focal point is a specific location in an image that you consider important. It's meant to draw the viewer's attention or highlight a key feature.

In Content Hub, focal points are persistent, and they automatically adjust cropping around themselves to maintain visibility of essential product features, for example, in website banners of varying aspect ratios. You can set a single focal point per asset, defined by X and Y coordinates, and this focal point will apply to all new and existing public links for that asset.

Note

You can also set a focal point when you create or edit a public link.
