Support » Fixing WordPress » Images displaying larger than uploaded images

  • Resolved FranY


    I have a strange problem on my website that I am making over. I have previously never had the problem on this or my other WP sites.

    If I upload an image that is 800px wide it displays as 880px wide. You can see this in the link example I have provided. The correct image dimensions should be 800px x 969px. It is happening to all images of various sizes. They are all being enlarged despite pixel dimensions being correctly shown in the “media library” under the “edit media” section. As a result they are all slightly blurry and not as sharp or clear.

    I’m not sure what has changed to make this happen. Am I missing something really obvious? LOL. Any help appreciated. I am using the genesis sample theme.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi! I just took a look at the link you included and the image seems to be showing as 800px wide for me. In the CSS, I’m also seeing that the max-width has been set to 800px.

    Were you able to fix this? Do you have any other pages where this is still happening?

    Hi evarlese,

    Thanks so much for looking at the link. You gave me a clue as to the problem. I think it is with my Chrome browser. When I check the images in Firefox and Microsoft browsers images display normally.

    When I look at images on my other wordpress sites in Chrome everything is normal. So strange! This is happening just on this website. Not sure where to look next.

    I found the solution to my problem! I reset my Chrome browser’s zoom (didn’t know that was a thing until I read about it LOL). Press Ctrl + 0 (zero). All my images, which I realised were enlarged by 10% snapped back to normal. Such a strange problem as this was only occurring on one WP site but not my others.

    Ah, I’m so glad you were able to figure it out! Happy to hear everything is back to normal now 🙂
