Why aren't side by side images displayed at equal heights as they are set?

  1. This issue just arose a couple of days ago. It's been a long, long time since I experienced this particular problem at WordPress. com. Side by side images set at same height display at different heights in page or post.

    Example 1: The following two images are embedded in my leading post, http://songbook1.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/songbook-site-index/, each with the same height of 260 pixels.

    <p style="text-align: center;"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-101220" title="1969-Poppy Family-Which Way You Goin' Billy-LP-1" alt="1969-Poppy Family-Which Way You Goin' Billy-LP-1" src="http://songbook1.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/1969-poppy-family-which-way-you-goin-billy-lp-1.jpg" height="260" width="260" /><img class="alignnone" title="Poppy Family-1" alt="Poppy Family-1" src="http://songbook1.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/poppy-family-1.jpg" height="260" width="214" /></p>

    However, the left image displays about 20% larger than the right.

    Example 2:

    Thinking that the issue might be localized to that post, I made a test page:

    http://songbook1.wordpress.com/pp/fx/0-new-features/test-page-4-december-2012-images-set-at-identical-heights-appear-at-different-heights/

    Oddly enough, the reverse occurs in this case. The same two images are used and set at identical heights. But this time, the right image displays at about 15% larger than the left.

    The blog I need help with is songbook1.wordpress.com.

  2. Nothing odd on the test page, as no height is specified.

    On the post I'm seeing same height.
    I'm assuming you tried to change the numbers in the code after inserting the images. But a) the numbers you set aren't the exact same aspect ratio as the originals, b) that's not the way to do it anyway: it may or may not work, depending on the browser. (What browser and version are you using?)
