[resolved] Featured Image Size Issues (4 posts)

    The featured image size for my post has to be large to appear properly in the showcase slider, however when you click on it and go to the post the featured image is cut to thumbnail size and only uses the center of the image. I have used the image edit which says the changes will be applied only to the thumbnail, but they do not show up in the post. How do you have both work. Full size for the slider and yet when it goes to the post it is not cut to the center of the image?

    read: post thumbnails

    And maybe (just guessing) on your theme's single.php change this:
    <?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
    to this:
    <?php the_post_thumbnail('large'); ?>

    I may be wrong here, but my understanding is that this is referring to the thumbnail size of the image, which is not realted to the thumbnail/featured image

    Its a bit confusing but an uploaded image has sizes, thumbnail, small, medium, large, full, etc

    These are the image sizes. Then there is the featured image, which also can be referred to as a thumbnail, and in fact is in the code

    But it is not the thumbnail size. Edits to images do not affect the the_post_thumbnail/featured image. The featured image is always cropped to the center of the image

    Thanks for the help guys as you pointed me in the right direction and I ended up going into my theme and disabling the "automatically insert thumbnail" setting so that what I pick for a featured image is not inserted in my post. That way I can insert my own thumbnail that looks like it belongs. You guys are awesome!
