Support » Fixing WordPress » Changing image size in post defaults to thumbnail-size when updated.

  • This is my first time posting to the forum so I hope it’s correctly done.

    When I create a new post in WP and add a new media image to the post everything works out ok. However, when I edit the image to reduce its size so it fits properly in the post, as I view the updated post, it changes it to my default thumbnail size.

    For example,
    I’ve inserted this image in my post:
    <a href="" rel="attachment wp-att-526"><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-526" alt="Emerald Pools - Zion" src="" width="446" height="700" /></a>

    I reduce the width and height proportionately:
    <a href="" rel="attachment wp-att-526"><img class="alignleft wp-image-526" alt="Emerald Pools - Zion" src="" width="357" height="560" /></a>

    When I push update and look at the updated post on my blog it shows as a 150×150 thumbnail instead. Even the source code shows it’s a 150×150. You can view the exact example here:

    Neither of the two images on the post should be thumbnails and in my edit post viewer they are their proper sizes.
    In fact, all of my previous posts have now switched to thumbnails if they were once reduced sized images.
    I believe this started happening with the new update that changed the media tool.

    Any idea what could be happening?
    Thanks for the help!

    It sounds as a plugin may be messing with the embedded images in your post content. Have you tried deactivating all plugins to see if the problem can be reproduced?

    Hmm, it appears as if the Jetpack plugin is causing the problem. Perhaps something I edited in the CSS using their “Edit CSS” tool?

    *Edit: I commented out all of the changes to the CSS and that changed nothing, the problem persists. Any ideas from here?

    **Edit: Did some more testing around and I figured out it was photon causing the issue. For now I’ve deactivated it, but is there a way to resolve this issue without having to remove photon?
