    hi,

    i thought with twenty fourteen extended 847 page width, the featured image would also have to be 847px wide, but I still have open space (with diagonal lines) on each side of the featured image.

    what are the correct dimensions for a featured image with full width page (847px)?

    thanks

    The theme has 2 image sizes for the thumbnails – 1 set at 672 by 372 pixels and the 2nd set at 1038 by 576 pixels. These are alternated depending on the layout chosen.

    So when you increase the width to 847px then the larger size is used but as with all themes WordPress does not pick this change up automatically and there’s always a requirement to regenerate the thumbnails.

    Please use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin found at http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ which will resolve your issue.

    Do let us know if that helps or not.

    Thanks,

    hi thanks for the quick note. i rescaled to 1038×576 and now it’s hugging the sides of the page as i wanted.

    however, i still have a white space right under the header bar in twenty fourteen (the black bar with the menu, etc.).

    see this to see what i mean: link

    i would like the featured image to hug the black bar.

    how to remove the padding between the top bar and the featured image.

    thanks

    Cool.

    The white space is a theme design and not from the plugin – I’d suggest posting in the theme’s forum for assistance on that issue. You might want to do a quick scan to see if it has not been fully answered as I seem to recall the issue being raised a few times.

    Marking as resolved as additional question is theme related and not a plugin issue.

    Hi there,

    My featured image is shrinking even if I use an image which is 672 by 372 pixel. What could I do. Here is the article in question.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Adel,

    The recommended image size for full width settings is 1038px(w) by 576px(h) – anything smaller than that will not fully fit in to place and will be stretched if used with the 100% image width setting.

    Hope that helps,
    Zulf

    Hi Zulfikar,
    Thank you for your quick answer. I resized my picture to 1038 × 576 but i still get the same result. Any Idea?
    How do i chose another option than full width for the featured picture?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,
    I sloved my problem bychanging the CSS applied on the featured picture
    from max-width: 100% to
    width: 100%

    so far it works, I hope it will not cause another issue.

    Where was that change made? I’ll take a look in to it and hopefully work a fix so that no manual edits are needed.

    I’m having similar issues. I want to have the featured image to be longer (larger height). How can I make the featured image height larger? The main reason is to use comic easel which seems to be restriced by something in twenty fourteen.

    @suzyuzi – there’s a setting in the plugin to change the overall featured image height, does not work for you?

    Regenerate thumbnails did not adjust anything. Where in the plug-in will it allow me to change the height?

    The option “Set Overall Content Image max-height (numbers only!) – maximum recommended is 572” is located in the Twenty Fourteen General Options tab in the customizer.

    Please note that this only refers to the Featured Image i.e post thumbnail and the in content images.

    Regards,
    Zulf

    The “Set Overall Content Image max-height (numbers only!) – maximum recommended is 572” -did not resolve the issue. The image still spreads to fit width and length doesn’t change. In content images haven’t changed either.

    The proa image you have on the linked to page has the dimensions 1038px by 576px which indicate its what it was cropped to by the theme’s functions.

    The general rule is whenever you change image dimensions you should either reupload or regenerate them in order for them to be cropped to the new measures. The images must be at least as large in height as to what you wish to set them to.

    What is the actual image size?
