I need to make the media photos smaller. I’ve made them 500X375 which was the size in your example in the “tools” section. They haven’t changed a bit (they began twice that size). The photos take up the entire screen when someone goes to a page of my blog. I’d like them to be much, much, much smaller. HOW?
The blog I need help with is teskeyn.wordpress.com.
Hi there, I think you will find the reason why that may be here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/images-resizing?replies=4 and what to do to get help here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/photos-have-become-small-and-off-centered?replies=23#post-1448135
Nope. My problem is not addressed in either of those links. They’re talking about the images automatically resizing when changing themes, etc. I’m not changing themes. I just want my images to not take up the entire screen. How do I do that?
The introduction of this new resizing feature has led to some existing images becoming larger on some blogs and smaller on other blogs. I do suggest that your read the fixes provided and it they don’t work for you then I suggest you post into the thread where Staff are assisting with image resizing issues.
That is NOT my problem! The images aren’t RE sizing – they have never been small! They’ve ALWAYS been the same size – HUGE – and i want them smaller. You post links, yet I can’t even tell how to post a comment or question on those threads. Can you at least answer that question?
@teskeyn, to insert an image at 500X375:
First, Insert an image normally and note the sizes that are listed at the bottom right when you add the image. If you don’t see an option for the size you were expecting, you can either update the Settings > Media sizes in your blog dashboard to update all the images of the same size on the blog at once, or you can disconnect the image from those settings using the following steps:
- Click on the image in the visual editor
- Click the Edit Image button that appears
- Click the Advanced Settings Tab
- Find the “CSS Class” field and remove the size-thumbnail, size-medium, or size-large text
- Click update and save the post
I finally got help from friends on Facebook – better than this forum. When you say, “insert an image normally” there is no “normal.” Turns out I need to insert an image directly into a page rather than using the media library. No one has mentioned this in any thread. When doing it through the media library, I get none of the options you mention. They only appear when inserting a pic directly into a page from the “pages” tab on the dashboard. Maybe use this information to future frustrated people!

This is what I mean by inserting an image normally: http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/

All of the options I mentioned are available if you insert an image through the media library and then click on the image in the editor after it has been inserted.
Aside: I would like to go through and make the images help page better too! So your feedback is really important to me. When I find tips like the one you posted above, it helps me figure out better ways to update help pages.
If you have any additional ideas about how to make http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/ better, I would love to hear them.
Thanks – you need to realize there is no “normal” to people. Everyone approaches this differently. When I first googled how to add photos, someone in this forum led me to the “media library” to add photos there, then add them to pages. Never assume people are doing it the same way your’e doing it!
You’re totally right. I should have said supported instead of normal and provided the images support page link.
Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it!
