i've added some images to some posts using the zemanta 'recommendations' system - that seems to work fine. the images are set to right-aligned, medium width.
on the home page of the blog the theme uses max-width and max-height to show the images smaller. the default max-width in the theme options is (almost?) the full width of the columns on the home page so i halved that a few days ago and all seemed to be well - the pictures were smaller but had the correct proportions.
however, since yesterday evening the image proportions have got messed up - it's as if the max-height wasn't being applied until yesterday evening.
today i've tried adjusting the max-width and max-height settings in the theme, making the max-height larger - but the theme seems to use the max-width value (specified in the theme options) for both max-width and max-height in the css - so tall images end up squashed square.
has something been changed? please help. :-)
The blog I need help with is themorningbabel.wordpress.com.
