Once you've found a picture of the pedal you want to add, how do you get it to the size it's supposed to be? I tried to add a pedal, but I could tell by comparing it to other pedals on my board that it wasn't the right size. Can someone please walk me through how you get the pedals sized properly?

Thanks in advance! :)


You have to enter the correct width of the pedal. Everything else will be resized automatically.

That's what I do. I go to the pedal company's website to get the dimensions, but the image still won't be the right size. It'll be too small. It happens no matter what pedal I'm trying to add. :/


Hi, just to reiterate this - looks like the resizing doesn't function exactly as intended (or there's something i'm doing wrong) -

Here are 2 sets of pedals with similar/the same dimensions that aren't scaled how they should be


Still can't figure this out. Can someone please explain to me how you're getting the pedal image to the correct size? Even after adding the dimensions, the image is not the right size. Are you using some kind of photo editing software or???


Do you have an example where it does not work?

In general:
* if you upload a JPG, where the pedal is placed on an evenly background, the software tries to autocrop the pedal and change the even background into transparency.
* if you upload a PNG there is no auto image processing involved.

So if the autocrop does not work uploaded PNGs that were edited with an external software indeed give the best results.

Also check where you get the dimensions from.
Instead of giving the right dimensions of a pedal, shops like Amazon often just list the dimension of the package.

(sorry must have deleted the old one)

The model feT on the left was my old (and now unnecessary) attempt at adding the pedal, with the 93 x 116 mm dimensions of the Hammond 1590BB. Next to it is a pedal with a 118mm height that's clearly completely different, and next to that is someone else's attempt at a model feT, with 148mm height that's still not as tall as the 118mm of the Sea Machine in the middle.

That's just the thing, it doesn't work for ANY pedal that I add. I always get the dimensions directly from the pedal manufacturer's website. I use a PNG image with a transparent background, but then when I enter the dimensions and submit the pedal,
it doesn't get resized properly. Is that all you have to do is enter the dimensions, or is there something else involved? I'm sure it's probably an error on my end. I'm no photo editing expert.
