    I am using the Skeptical theme for my WordPress site, and all of my featured images seem to be using a left align by default.

    I cannot figure out how to change this so that all of my feature images are centered.

    Do I need to do this through custom CSS? Or is there an easier way? I have custom CSS, but I am not very knowledgeable about how to use it.

    Hi,

    What’s the URL of your site that needs CSS help?

    If you look at the documentation for Skeptical:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/skeptical/

    You’ll see that the Specs box at the bottom says:

    The featured image max width is 519 and it works best with the width.

    The theme is expecting the featured images to be at least 519px wide.

    I tested some CSS options to try centering smaller featured images in Skeptical, but because of how the theme hard codes the featured image size… if you adjust one, you adjust them all and it makes the ones that are full width look off-kilter.

    I would recommend uploading featured images that are at least 519px wide even if you have to add a little white space to the image itself to get it to look centered.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I resized all my featured images to 519 width, and now there is no more awkward white space around them.
