Images not showing at the correct size

  1. Do we have an ETA for a fix for this issue?? The relevant thread is closed, but the problem is still there.

    I resize a picture to 408px width, and it shows up fine in edit mode.

    But in live mode it suddenly shows up as 300px width.

    When is this going to be fixed?

    The blog I need help with is zenid10.wordpress.com.

  2. While the sticky is closed, the main forum thread is still open http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/photos-have-become-small-and-off-centered

    I suggest reading designsimply's replies to see if there is a fix in progress for your specific issue.

  3. I resize a picture to 408px width, and it shows up fine in edit mode.

    Can you try the following steps?

    1. Insert an image normally
    2. Click on the image in the visual editor
    3. Click the Edit Image button that appears
    4. Click the Advanced Settings Tab
    5. Find the "CSS Class" field and remove size-thumbnail, size-medium, or size-large
    6. Click update and save the post

    Alternately, you can control the image sizes using the Settings > Media page in your dashboard, but note those settings will affect all of the images on the blog using the same size names in the advanced settings tab.

  4. Thanks for your help.

    There is no "advanced settings" tab, mine is called "text", but removing
    'size-medium' does indeed fix the problem. Thanks you very much!

    Now all the the programmers have to do is fix the *actual* bug that is causing this to happen.

  5. designsimply,

    Hello there. Have you forgotten me? You tested a tool on September 26th on a couple of my sites and said you'd "check back in later tonight" at Why are images tagged "size-medium" in CSS displaying at full size?

  6. but removing 'size-medium' does indeed fix the problem. Thanks you very much!

    Awesome!

    There is no "advanced settings" tab, mine is called "text"

    The advanced settings tab only appears when you click an image and then click the edit button that appears on it. Here's an example: https://cloudup.com/cheNMDVY5UY

    Now all the the programmers have to do is fix the *actual* bug that is causing this to happen.

    It's not a bug, it's a change in the way the main media settings interact with blogs. There was one bug happening with the sizing for portrait images when we first updated, but that has already been fixed. There's another bug for captioned images, and that is being worked on and the code is still under review. You can follow updates for all the related issues at http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/images-resizing?replies=4 too.

  7. @musicdoc1, sorry for the delay! It is taking me a bit longer than I thought it would to get back to a few of the threads I'm helping on this week. I will reply to your other thread.

  8. Sorry, but I respectively disagree on the bug issue.

    When I resize an image, to 408px, and it appears always as 408px width and with script text that says "=480" in edit mode, but then the page appears live as a smaller image with the tags "=300", then THAT IS A BUG.

    Thanks for telling me how to remove the "small-medium" text placed there by... THE BUG. A workaround is good enough. Fixing the actual problem would be even better.

    Cheers!

  9. I meant "respectfully", not "respectively" - doh!

  10. designsimply,
    Okay. Got your message and awaiting your assistance on Why are images tagged "size-medium", etc.

  11. @zenid10, I think it's a transition rather than a bug :) but I see your point. Also, a bug is something that is a mistake and this is more of an intentional change that we know will take a little bit of work to switch to but we feel that the benefits in the long run will work out in everyone's favor.

    Sorry it's been causing trouble for you!

    I have a tool now that will let me remove all size-thumbnail, size-medium, and size-large class name from the images—doing that will disconnect the sizes on the Settings > Media page from your images so you can't use the Settings > Media options to resize already-embedded images any more and so the settings won't affect past images you embedded in the past. Does that sound like something you'd like to do?
