    Hello everyone,

    I’m trying to upload a header image to a website I’m working on, but the theme always resizes it and doesn’t fit the image correctly. The theme I’m working with is Writerblog. It says that I should upload an image of 1920 x 850 ratio, and that’s exactly what I do. And yet, it just zooms in and only part of the image is show.

    I attached a link to the website: rachelfaran.co.il

    What do you think I should do?
    Thanks in advance,
    Omer

    In the “Additional CSS” section of the dashboard add this:

    
    
    .header-image { 
        height: 300px; 
    }
    
    @media only screen and (max-width: 1024px) { 
        .header-image { 
            height: 850px; 
        } 
    }

    Hello Andrew thanks a lot for your support and help.

    I’ve tried it but it didn’t work unfortunately. I just copied your code as a block and pasted it in style.css
    And also tried to paste it in customized CSS (I’m sorry my wordpresss is in Hebrew so the term are slightly different)

    Is that what you meant?

    It’s so strange that is doesn’t help. I guess something else prevents it from changing?

    Thanks in advance,
    Omer

    Hi Omer,

    I see the image this way on you website currently – http://prntscr.com/ixxoa6.

    This is how the theme is supposed to show the image as it is showing the image in parallax effect.

    If you want to increase this height, simply change the height value in above code. Or

    Go to Appearance > Customize > Header area > Header Image and change the height there – http://prntscr.com/ixxpx1.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hello Vishakha Patel and thank you for your answer.

    The ratio of the container of the image is perfect, but I don’t understand why part of the image disappears. As you can see here: http://prntscr.com/ixxoa6 , part of the face and body is cut and doesn’t show.

    Please, how can I fix it? When I increase the height, more of the image is reavealed but then it doesn’t look good design-wise because the ratio as it as is good.
    I don’t understand why doesn’t the WHOLE image fits into the container ? Why can I only see part of the image? Please note that the ratio of that image is exactly as suggested by the theme.

    If it helps, I’m willing to give you authrization so that you can check.

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Omer

    Hi Omer,

    Your image size and container size should be similar in terms to display the image without getting cropped. If you want to keep the image height as per the current container height then use an image of the small height around 300px.

    It cannot fit the bigger image in a small container. The image size mentioned is for a better image quality. In that case, one has to increase the height too to 850 or similar.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks again Vishakha Patel,

    I tried to use an image with the height of 300px and then the theme zooms in and much of the height and width disappear. So with all the combinations of heights and widths I never managed to upload the image without some of its height being cropped out.

    Also, on mobile phones some of the WIDTH (not height) of the image is cropped. I tried to play with max-width: 100% in CSS but it didn’t help. What do you think I can do?

    Btw, maybe all of those problems occur because of the parallax code? Is it possible to cancel it and make the image not-parallax just for testing?

    Thanks again in advance,
    Omer

    Hi Omer,

    Yes, the image zooms in because it is having parallax effect on the scroll. When you scroll the image gets hidden/displayed.

    It is not a bug but it is intended to display that way. It will require custom work to remove it. Currently, the parallax effect is coming from the file “/themes/amadeus/js/scripts.js”.

    Code responsible is:

    //Parallax
    jQuery(function($) {
    	$('.header-image').parallax('50%', 0.3);
    });

    To stop it, you will also need to have some custom code. I tried with following code to Customize > Additional CSS section:

    .header-image {
       background-attachment: scroll;
    }

    And height as per your requirement: http://prntscr.com/j0mg6k.

    Similarly, for mobile you can try this code under a mobile icon of Advanced CSS Editor plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-css-editor/:

    .header-image {
        background-size: contain;
    }
