  • I’ve tried using the scale feature, the percentage slider

    Please describe in greater detail. Is this from a theme or plugin?

    I’m using the Patchwork theme and I’m having trouble when I try to insert the images into a post. It’s not all the images, because some of them that I’ve gotten off the internet and uploaded will show up small and I can scale them down, but photos that I’ve taken myself and uploaded will not resize. In the post I put up before, the first image says it is Width 448 and Height 672, yet it shows up the same size as the second image. I don’t know how else to explain the problem.

    The problem is not to not use images from the internet…a very wide set of technologies are in use (few are know to most) to prevent such. Use images only you created and own.

    I don’t understand how that is supposed to help me solve the problem. The issue is with the images that I created and own. The large ones are the ones that won’t size down. Can you give me any help with that?

    From additional research, I have gotten the impression that when you upload photos, it is supposed to create a thumbnail, medium and large version, is that correct?

    I have had my blog for almost a year and I have never had the option to choose between those three sizes. I may be misunderstanding, or that may have changed.

    because some of them that I’ve gotten off the internet and uploaded

    I was referring to above.

    I realize that. It still doesn’t help me solve my problem.

    I’ve noticed that if I use a WordPress theme like twenty twelve, it resizes them fine. Any ideas on how I can get my current theme to size them correctly?

    Any ideas on how I can get my current theme to size them correctly?

    If this is a theme-specific issue, please post in the theme’s own forum:

    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/patchwork

    register your custom size in functions.php
    add_image_size(‘my_feature_image’, 450, 250, true);
    and call it in yout theme
    <?php the_post_thumbnail(‘my_feature_image’); ?>

    I figured it out thanks to a post on the theme specific forum.

    This should be fixed if you remove line 592 from style.css — width: auto is a hack for IE 8 but it causes images to get stretched in other browsers. Normally I remove it from the stylesheet altogether.
