Pinboard
Pinboard not using properly sized images. (4 posts)

    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but using full-width templates, Pinboard (or wordpress) is consistently using and downsizing my images for display on my front page.

    For example, I'll upload a photo I took with a long side of 1000px, but Pinboard will display a smaller version of the file (700x465) and then upsize it back to 1000px to fit the page, generally making it look awful.

    If it matters, I primarily denote my posts as single images.

    My image sizes are set properly, as far as I know - with my "large" image set at 1000px maximum. It seems as if all of the regular photo sizes are being created, but Pinboard is creating a variety of other sizes for every photo as well, including the 700x466 version that I'd rather not use.

    Can anyone help me out? I'm a photographer by profession and this downsizing/upsizing thing is really making my photos look bad.

    Interestingly, I'm having this issue too with Pinboard resizing photos for my front page, only all my blog posts are RSS fed (using RSS Multi Importer), so when the posts feed into the site, the photos are resized to 72 x 72, or something like it, then upsized again for the front page. They look super pixely. Ugh.

    All that to say, following this thread.

    I'm finding the same thing... especially with the slider. It's stretching my images to a super huge size, and I can't seem to figure out how to make it smaller.
