Resizing photos in WordPress

Making sure your images are the right size can make a big difference to the impact of your blog

It’s clear in the example’s below that the second version looks a lot cleaner and more professional than the first.

In the first version:

  • the subjects faces are barely discernible;
  • it too much blank space surrounding it; and
  • the caption extends over too many lines because of the width.

The second version matches the theme’s standard column width and sits comfortably in the frame.

Some themes insert smaller images by default but you can change this very easily – either when you upload the image (generally choose “Large”) or after you have inserted the image into the post.

The video at the bottom of this post explains how.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum
