    Hi,

    Something has happened with my image sizes on the featured posts slider:
    http://test.purewebsites.co.nz/lastparadise/

    Some photos are cropped to the standard size while others aren't. I have uploaded the second (bungy) photo again at 750x506 px size to double check and same result.

    What I woul like to actually do is have all images displaying as the first one i.e. at 750x506 px with no thumbnails.

    Please tell me if this is possible as it's the last major change needed for the site. Thank you for your time.

    /**
     *  Image sizes

     */
    function oxygen_image_sizes() {
    
            add_image_size( 'archive-thumbnail', 470, 140, true );
            add_image_size( 'single-thumbnail', 470, 260, true );
            add_image_size( 'featured-thumbnail', 750, 380, true );
            add_image_size( 'slider-nav-thumbnail', 110, 70, true );
    }

    Simon-Bungy-surfboard.jpg is at 750x380 which is the correct size.

    You should delete and re-upload images that doesn't have the correct size. Or use Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to do that.

    We should not increase the height of the image in slider without consideration on the UX. See the height of actual viewport on most (or on average) devices. With the height that you ask for ( 506px ) plus the thumbs for navigation and some margin, it's like we design a slideshow that requires vertical viewport optimized for big screen only.

    Some people are using netbook, with IE and all the toolbar packed at the top, leaving the actual height on viewport very little.

    The default design, on this front page, has the total height of 630px counting from the topmost of the page to the bottom of slide nav thumbs. The 630px is pretty big enough already.

    Yes the plugin worked a treat thanks. But is there a way to make the thumbnails invisible also? Thanks very much.
