    I wonder what size the picture in the "selected picutre" should be to look good at the top of the page in the blogpage section?
    I have tried different sizes and some doesn't look like the original in the resolution.

    Kindly
    Mona

    What's your site URL? Without seeing your site, no-one can answer your question.

    Are you referring to Twenty Fourteen's header image?

    No, it's called "utvald bild" in Swedish. I think its called sellected image in English.
    It's in the edit mode on the blogg. A box found under the actual blog edit box.

    Ah - are you perhaps referring to the Featured image? If so, is it the size of this image in the main posts page (in the featured posts section) or on the single Post page that is the problem?

    Yes! Thats the one.
    Both of them. At the main page the picture is small and not fitting the frame and at the post it's to big and unsharp.

    The images may not all fit the frames because you have configured WordPress to crop images proportionally (aka soft crop) in Settings -> Media. You can change this behaviour by checking the "crop to exact dimensions" on this page and then running http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ But the downside to this is that your images may not be cropped appropriately.

    But, what size is appropriate?

    For what? A header image or a featured image? Assuming the latter and given that the theme is responsive, there is no single answer to this as images will always look different depending upon the current screen size.
