    When using photon & JP-Carousel photon stretches & Skews Images.

    I know this because it's fine when i disable photon.

    I'm using a bootstrap based theme.

    Hi Eric,

    I took a look and I don't see any stretched images, and Photon does appear to be active at the moment. Can you take a screenshot of what you see (you can use http://snag.gy for the screenshots) and let me know what browser and version you are using? You can check on here if you're not sure: http://thismachine.info/

    That won't work. The original image looks fine.

    The stretching and skewing happens when the carousel loads after about 1 second. specifically on http://bartwillis.com/polynesian/#jp-carousel-154

    http://bartwillis.com/polynesian/#jp-carousel-147

    I have tried the carousel on several different computers and browsers.

    Hi Eric, I see what you mean. I'm not sure why it's happening, but I was wondering, does your theme have a $content_width ?

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Content_Width

    I ask because sometimes if a theme doesn't have that variable set, funny things can happen to images, so I'm trying to narrow down the possible issues here. Let me know if it does or not. Thanks!

    I'm not totally sure. I'm using a sloghtly modified version of the nova-lite theme. http://wordpress.org/themes/nova-lite

    Would that be in functions.php ?

    I checked, and if you're using the latest version, it should be here: https://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/nova-lite/1.0.6/core/main.php#L22

    When you say, slightly modified, did you just change the CSS/template files, or did you do more than that?

    Thanks for checking.
    Yes, just CSS and HTML on the footer.php

    .entry-info {display:none;}
    .pin-article {background: #0f0f0f; }
    .jp-carousel-titleanddesc-title {display:none !important;}
    a.jp-carousel-image-download { display:none !important;}
    .pin-article h1.title {font-family: Marcellus SC;}

    Eric, just out of curiosity, does the same thing happen when you switch to the default TwentyTwelve or TwentyThirteen theme, for example?

    I tried 2014. I don't think it happens when 2014 is activated.

    Hey Eric,

    Ok, so then there has got to be something in the theme then. I'd like to try your theme for myself. Could you save a zip of your theme files to your server and then share the link to it, so I can download it and try?

    Hi Eric,

    I've looked at it and asked for a colleague to help, and we can't pin down the problem. We suspect that the theme is somehow increasing the size of the containing div around the image, thus making them look stretched out because the images have an inline style of 100% width and height; what I can't tell you is why this is happening, but it must be in your theme since I was able to reproduce by switching back and forth from your theme to the default theme. At this point, I suggest you ask the theme author if they have any ideas, and let me know what he says.

    ok. IT definitely does not happen once i disable PHOTON.

    but, thanks for the effort.

    Funny, I had the opposite problem. The images were stretched until I enabled Photon, then it worked.

    Jetpack + Weaver II theme.

    I have the same opposite problem as Ann does. Has this been solved?
