Support » Plugin: Complete Open Graph » Default Image being reduced automatically to 300px

  • Resolved fladd


    I loaded an image that is 600 x 337 px (and it shows the correct dimensions in the media library), but when I choose that file for the Open Graph plugin’s Default Image setting, it automatically re-scales down to 300 x 169. And when I uploaded a new image to the media library that is 400 x 337, the plugin automatically seems to scale it down to 300 x 253 once I choose it as the default image.

    So it appears that the plugin in will not allow a Default Image to have a maximum width or height greater than 300, and it scales the longest side down proportionately? Is that correct?

    This is a problem for some social media networks that expect 16:9 images for their preview, or that display the og:image in a larger size. For instance, LinkedIn takes my 300×253 image (which the plugin scaled down from 400×337) and crops the top and bottom to achieve a 16:9 aspect ration AND it scales it up to 518 x 270 (which looks jaggy).

    Is there a way to upload and select images for the Default Image that are larger than 300px in any dimension? Thanks.

    Here is a visual representation of the problem:

    Thanks for letting me know about this! I plan on doing some related work to the image selection process. This will be a part of it, probably within the next week or so.

    Version 3.4.4 should address these resize issues. Thanks again for reporting!
