Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » Optional Image size for parallax homepage images

  • Hello, I appreciate this Twenty Seventeen theme.The Twenty Seventeen theme makes it really fast and easy to build websites.

    I have tried various sizes of images for the parallax images on the homepage. It seems that regardless of what size the images are either the top or bottom or both sides are cropped off.

    Sizes which are sub optimal:

    Possibly the picture size is not the issue, but has anyone found an image size that displays in the Twenty Seventeen theme without the edges being cropped off?

    Thanks in advance.

    The thing is that the theme design is to crop the image – changing that is a bit of a pain. The theme was not designed for images that contained information or images that had focal points.

    Hello Andrew, Thanks for the fast reply. Although not the answer I was hoping for, it does make sense to look for images without focal points or messages if there is not a way to control how the images display. It does appear that only the center part of the images display and it appears kind of random which parts are cropped off.
    I am hoping someone else has a different reply or a solution. This theme has the potential to be a very good theme. There are only a few problems to solve. This is one of them.

    Thanks again, Let’s not mark this as resolved until other people have had a chance to reply.

    We could definitely use some support on this theme as well

    @glossandtoss, Open a new thread for each question you have:

    However if you’re asking how to stop the hero image from cropping then you’re out of luck, as per my above post.

    Thanks Andrew. I”ll do so now and hope to hear from you.
