Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding images to post

  • Hello, I think I have a basic question but I really can’t figure out how to do it. The problem is with adding images in my post. I want to have a post with different sizes of images, columns and so on, just like there. I’m trying to adjust the pictures in standard media editor but I guess it’s not the same, cause in my post they look small and I can’t even make gaps between the pictures in the gallery post for example, and have desirable sizes. Could you please tell me how to do it?? Should I insert some plugin to arrange the media? Or is there special way to do it?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • The 2 images side by side on the example site you linked to are actually 1 images with white background.

    See this

    So to imitate that look, the easiest way is to just do the same; using image editor to combine 2 images into 1.

    It’s possible but a bit more difficult if you wanna use gallery feature to achieve that similar look. Try using 2-column gallery with medium size image selected.

    Learn how your theme works, try selecting post template or page template that is wide (with no sidebar) so that the content area is bigger and centered. Not putting any widget into sidebar is not enough because theme still reserves that empty area, we have to select post template or page template for no-sidebar.

    ok thank you very much – quite helpful! and can you please tell me how to manage with big size photos like here https://i0.wp.com/zinguyen.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/first-snow-boston-00005.jpg?zoom=2&resize=814%2C1221&ssl=1

    It looks quite big in the example post I’ve sent earlier. I mean when I add my photos they look much smaller, and if I change resolution, it’s still the same size but heavier..

    Congratulation! I could see your updated page with new images it look beautiful now.

    Ok, we have to be aware of 2 things; the Media Settings (once set, try not to change it), and also your selection of media size when inserting (placing) image into post/page content.

    The Media settings allows users to be able to decide the dimension (pixel) of images WP automatically crop upon upload. See detail here in this link https://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Media_Screen

    Also when we are placing image into post/page content we can be able to choose the size of image displayed, see Step 4 – Attachment Details in this link https://codex.wordpress.org/Inserting_Media_into_Posts_and_Pages

    Be aware that it also depends on the content width of the theme in use. Sometimes we choose large size image but theme’s content width is narrower so the image will still appear smaller than its actual size. That’s why I said earlier to select the post/page template that’s wide (usually called no-sidebar template), I believe your theme has this wide template option for both post and page.
