Control Image Display in Reader

  1. Most of my posts have the same format. One large size image followed by text followed by a gallery of thumbnails. If I make a standard format post in the reader the images from the gallery will display as a tiled gallery. That isn't how I intended to present my photography. I found that if the theme has post formats I can specify "Image" format and the large image will display as a large image. That works nicely with landscape images, but portrait images are displayed small on the side of the entry of the reader.

    1. Is there any way that I can force the reader to just display the large image when using a theme that does not have post formats? (Publishing a single image per post is not a workable solution for me, even though most photographers do that.) [ A short code would be nice. Can this result be achieved by formatting the post with text before the large image?]

    2. Is there a way to make a portrait image display larger in the reader.

    I realize the reader has been a concern of photographers for the last month or so. All I want is a simple solution.

  2. We bloggers do not have any control over the display in the Reader.

  3. Timethief, I have limited control so long as I stick to themes with post formats. Today I migrated from Modularity Lite to Twenty Twelve, both have post formats. To have widgets and full width pages on Twenty Twelve, it is necessary to have a static front page. That is a major experiment for me. Please take a look and let me know what you think of it.
