Make photos larger - Blaskan Theme

  1. Hi there,

    I know this question has been asked a million times, but I still can't seem to make my photos larger than 100% in Blaskan theme. I've tried changing the size in Advanced Settings, changing the content width on the right hand side of the CSS editor (which I have purchased)... I've tried copying and pasting different CSS codes into the style sheet and nothing seems to work. I want the pictures about 25% larger. When I make the photos larger, they appear to be larger while I write the post, but when I publish the post they go back to their normal smaller size... Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

  4. You're welcome.

  5. The images won't get larger than their container area.

    I see that you've done this in your custom CSS:

    #site-wrapper,
    #main-nav ul ul,
    #core-content,
    #comments h3,
    legend span,
    #footer,
    .footer-content {
    	width: 600px;
    }

    So if you want the images larger than 600px, you need to increase that number.

    And I also see that you've inserted images individually at set sizes directly into the content. That's probably the main issue. Give the following steps a try:

    1) Open this page for editing http://stylesnapshot.com/2013/01/14/shark-on-my-shirt/
    2) At the top, insert a gallery using these instructions: http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/
    3) Switch to the Text editor and add the following into the gallery shortcode: size="full" columns="1"
    4) Preview the post

    Here is an example gallery shortcode you could use:

    [gallery size="full" columns="1" link="post" ids="198,176,174,175,173,172,171"]

    I really like galleries, but if you still wanted to insert the images individually, you could re-insert them at full width and they will get set to a specific size (whatever the full width is for your theme at the time you inserted them). What probably happened in your case is that you inserted the images *before* making the CSS changes and the image sizes were already set.
