twenty eleven: Basic Image Size Issue (5 posts)

    Hi,

    Newbie Q:
    I am formatting media in Photoshop to the desired with/heighth, then upload it to the media library in twenty eleven.

    When I publish the page, the images seem to all be imbedded in the page in a default format, which is much larger than what I prefer.

    What setting controls the image size when importing jpg's onto a static page in 3.4.1? Any reference to a good tutorial is also appreciated, along with a little "handholding" if someone is so kind to help a newbie out?
    :-)............THANKS!

    Peter

    please post a link to your site, pointing to a page with the image problem.

    the only image style is one to restrict the image to a max size:

    .entry-content img, .comment-content img, .widget img
    {
    	max-width: 97.5%;
    }

    What setting controls the image size when importing jpg's onto a static page

    there is some information:

    THANKS, alchymyth,

    http://www.mypcguru.net/wp/people/peter-reck/

    Here is the link to a page that shows a jpg image size 475x568, and I have used this process on an image 150x150, uploaded to the wp media library and they both show up the same size. My challenge: How can I have images uploaded so that they are pulled up in the browser at the size I uploaded them. Any guidance is appreciated!

    how do you insert images?

    the example image has a lot of inline formatting which is not added by WordPress:

    <p><code><div class="caption-pix-outer crystal"style="width:300px;float:left; margin-right:15px;margin-top:7px;margin-bottom:0px;background-color:transparent"><div class="caption-pix-inner"><a href="http://www.mypcguru.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/375_368.jpg"><img style="max-width:100%; width:300px;padding:0;margin:0;border:none" src="http://www.mypcguru.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/375_368.jpg" title="" alt="" /></a><span style="display:block; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto; ; padding-top:5px;padding-bottom:5px; width:280px; text-align:center;font-family:Arial; font-style:italic; color:#000000; font-size:13px; line-height:13px">Peter Reck</span></div></div></p>

    btw, that page has a lot of severe validation errors: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mypcguru.net%2Fwp%2Fpeople%2Fpeter-reck%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0
    which might or might not contribute to the problem.

    Alchymith: THANKS!!!
    In short: I am a beginner, and GRATEFUL to learn from you one step at the time.

    I insert images by uploading them to the WP Media Library, and then use the plugin Captionpix. Can you teach me to do better?

    If the page has severe validation errors, I imagine it has to do with my image importing, possible? - Would it help to simply delete the page and start from scratch? I will give that a whirl now.

    Peter
