Borders on images broken

  1. Hi,

    I'm using the Bueno theme. SInce yesterday, the grey borders on some of my images have been broken, meaning that the right side of the border is not showing up (almost as if the images are off center). I have checked this on different computers and browsers and the problem persists. Please let me know if you have any advice!

    Thank You!

    The blog I need help with is philipthesealion.wordpress.com.

    The site linked to your name is http://philipthesealion.wordpress.com/ using Bueno theme which has a maximum image width of 490 px. It appears that some of your most recent images (though not yesterday) are wider than that.

    If your images are wider than your posting column then you may not see them entirely, including not seeing borders that would normally be on your theme.

  4. Don't use "large" when inserting an image. Use "full" instead and wordpress will insert the images at the maximum width for your theme.

    Right now you are inserting images at "large" that are more than twice as wide as the theme content area.

    Also, go to settings > media and set the width for "large" at no more than 490. That is the maximum width image that can be inserted into the content area on Bueno.

  5. Also, uploading images that are larger than your theme can accommodate causes your pictures to look blurry and bad, and wastes your media storage space. Resize before uploading them!

  6. Thanks so much guys. I had been uploading the pics as large because otherwise the drawings appeared pixelated (choppy). I'll try all these tips!

  7. Pngs or gifs might work better for drawings. Just a thought.

  8. +1 for PNG and GIF. Graphic type images are what they excel at. JPG is for photographic type images.

  9. Will try that from now on. Thank You all!

  10. Hmm...if I resize the images or post them as "full" (even if I save them as GIF) they still appear scratchy. That's why I had used the "large" setting. I'll try PNG and posting in the forum you sent timethief. Thanks again though everyone! This is the first time I've had this problem...not sure what changed.

    @deanasobel: When you insert an oversized image, selecting Full-Size will scale down the image to the maximum that can ft in the theme you're using. The other three options are meant for inserting even smaller versions. They are there for you to use as three different default sizes after you set those defaults in Settings>Media.

    Selecting Large instead of Full-size or vv makes no difference in quality as long as the image is downsized by WP, because images downsized by WP lose some color and sharpness. As already suggested, for best quality you must downsize copies of your images in an image editing application to the right width for the theme you're using, and upload and insert those copies.

  12. Thank you panaghiotisadam; that makes sense. There's definitely a learning curve here so I really appreciate all the tips.
