Support » Fixing WordPress » Really Tall Image Height

  • I’ve looked everywhere for an answer and I just can’t seem to find it so here goes…

    I have an image that is 440 in width and 5576 in height. Every time I upload it, WordPress shrinks it to 317 x 4024. Trust me I’ve already fooled around with the media settings and maxed all the heights out to unlimited (0). I’ve even tried setting it to a very high number like 7000 just in case 0 did not work as unlimited. I’ve also made sure all the widths are more than 440.

    This has been bothering me for about a year and searching Google and WordPress’ own forums did not get any results. It’s driving me nuts so tonight I’ve finally signed up for a WordPress support account just to post this question.

    If anyone out there knows how I can fix this, I would greatly appreciate it. I’m going insane!

    Every time I upload it, WordPress shrinks it to 317 x 4024.

    Are you uploading the image as a background? Or as a normal image for insertion into a Post or Page?

    Hi esmi. Thanks for the reply. I’m uploading it normally to be inserted into my post. I still couldn’t figure this one out… 🙁

    Here’s an example picture that is very long that I am trying to insert into my post but WordPress shrinks it even for full size.

    If anyone wants to try, save the image and try posting it into your posts. WordPress will not upload the full size.

    Any help from anyone is greatly appreciated.
