Split media text columns are one of the options for placing content on the platform. These columns allow you to place images or icons side by side and add text if necessary. An added benefit is that you can turn images into links.
The images have a height and width of 344*344. An image that is square (i.e. where height and width are the same, regardless of the exact dimensions) is automatically resized.
But not all images fit in this option. You can resize an image that is not square with any file editor. You can also use an online file editor.
