    Why are you uploading an image that's too large? You can use either desktop image editing software or online image editing software to pre-size the images to fit prior to uploading them. Doing that means the image quality will not be compromised, you will not be wasting your upload space and you won't be troubleshooting images.

  3. Hi, thank you for your reply. The uploaded image size is not too large. The first feature slider image displays outside of its normal frame. That is, it does not crop correctly and overlaps with the horizontal line of smaller images below the feature. The problem seems to occur in Chrome not IE. Haven't tested Firefox.

    If this is not appearing for you when you view the site, good news!

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.

    Oxygen Theme Description /http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen Live demo site http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. ...
    Post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide, unless you make the post Sticky to show off in the featured slider, in which case they’re 750 pixels wide. Keep in mind: if you mark a post as Sticky but the featured image is less than 750 pixels wide, then it won’t display in the slider and will still disappear from the river of posts.

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide

    I don't see that using Firefox16 or Chrome 23. Have you tried clearing your browser cache? http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clear-your-cache-and-cookies

  6. I am also using Chrome 23. The display issue still appears (but only for the first image in the series) after clearing the cache and restarting.
