Support » Fixing WordPress » How do I make my images fit into the post?

  • Hi,
    I’m having a couple of problems with my blog which I hope you guys can help me out with.
    1. My latest post’s pictures seems to be overlapping the sidebar. I’ve tried to post bigger images but they seem to fit within the post once I preview them, it’s just these particular pictures. Does anyone know why they do that?
    2. I don’t know if it’s only me, but the post title doesn’t seem to be in line with the pictures below it even though they’re both centered. The title seems to be placed more to the left for some reason. Does anyone know why?
    This is my blogaddress
    And I’m using the theme Twenty Eleven
    Would really appreciate your help

    When you insert the images into the post, you should have the option of different sizes to display (thumbnail, medium, large, and full size – depending on the size of the original image).

    To get them to fit without overlapping the sidebar, choose a smaller size or shrink the images with image editing software before you upload them.

    Judging by your other images, it looks like an image with a width of about 560 pixels or less should fit just fine.

    As far as the alignment, they are both aligned center, the the title has the comment bubble on the right, so there is a smaller space for it to align in – this pushes the title slightly to the left. In general, I wouldn’t have really noticed this.

    That’s absolutely a way to solve it. What bugs me is that I can still post pictures that are of higher resolution (wider image) as full size and it still manages to re-sizes it down so the picture fits within the post area without it overlapping the sidebar. I guess I just want an answer to that.
    Compare this to this for instance.
    The latter is bigger by resolution but it automatically re-sizes when I posted it whereas the former does not.

    Thanks for the answer about the aligntment issue too. But are there any way for the post title to ignore that the bubble takes space and just scoot just abit more to the right? If not, how do I remove the bubble as I have already a comment link at the bottom of the post.
    Sorry for all the questions, I just hope to put an end to these issues.

    Sorry, the latter link is here
