    @chilecopadevino, all righty! I’ll keep an eye out. I’ll also circle back to http://chilecopadevino.com/ to take another look tomorrow morning if I don’t catch up on it tonight.

    I set up a draft, the photo is set as thumbnail its small in safari……… if I put the photo in an old entry replacing the existing photo it stays the same larger size as the older photo……….. I also redid the Montes Twin post from bottom up and the photo is smaller………..

    @chiliecopandevno!! We figured out the issue with your latest post and it has nothing to do with the recent image resizing update!

    What is happening is the long link at the end of the content is making the table cell on the right larger and the one on the left smaller and the image is automatically shrinking itself to fit. So, that’s an HTML issue, I just didn’t see it before!

    Try updating the post and changing this:

    To this:

    <a href="http://www.monteswines.com/en/wine_special_wines_montes_twins.php">Wine Special Wines Montes Twins</a>

    Major props to @thesacredpath for figuring this out!

    #1450382

    Yay my blog is all better : ) Thank you sooooooo much for fixing this!!

    @designsimply – THANK YOU! As far as I can see, all those darn portrait images are back to the size I wanted (that I had had all along) on my blog, so my issue has been resolved.

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Awesome! Thanks for your patience, guys. :)

    I’ll post again once I have more info. on the caption issue.

    Hi

    Can you clarify whether the image sizing problem is officially fixed or not ?

    I seem to be getting inconsistent results. Images on some recent posts look normal e.g. a recent test post (http://jimnicolson.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/wordpress-com-ongoing-image-sizing-problem/) is always ‘right’ but older posts (e.g. http://jimnicolson.wordpress.com/2012/11/02/rethinking-my-development-environment-part-1/) vary.

    I have cleared the browser (Firefox 23.0.1) cache but I can’t identify a pattern so I’m reluctant to explore changes with a potentially moving environment.

    I also notice that a browser refresh corrects the problem (temporarily) and interestingly actually changes the HTML code (I inspected the Image element HTML and took a before/after copy)

    I wasn’t sure whether I can post HTML snippets in forum comments or even if they are useful but can if so…

    Slightly off-topic but I can confirm an earlier poster’s observation that my subsctription to this thread dropped off after about a day.

    Regards

    The images on my blog have all changed size. I want them to be the whole width of the space and I had them set like this.
    http://artontuesdays.com/
    I cannot see how to set them like this – please advise?

    “Thanks for this. I have been checking blogs and images sizes. In every blog I checked so far the bloggers had uploaded HUGE images.”

    Uh… no. I just uploaded a photo that was 214 x 317 for a new postand have had the same results. I try to align the image to the left or the right and puts it in the center.

    I try to keep my images of the medium variety as much as possible. I t doesn’t matter.

    @ designsimply I agree with the previous poster. This is all gooblety-gook. My HTML experience is incredibly limited. I don’t want to have to try to figure out a solution, I just want to be able to insert my photos the way the interface says I should be able to and the way the editor shows it.

    You still haven’t decided how you’re going to proceed? Not to sound too caustic but how about just undoing the update and putting everything back to the way it was pre-update… y’know… when it worked. The explanation of the additional feature that caused this problem to begin with seems kind of silly to me. The ability to change a theme and keep photos the same is meaningless in comparison to being able to have photos do what hey are supposed to do for the cast majority of users who aren’t changing themes. Seriously, we’re gumming up the whole works for a feature that 90% of the users won’t take advantage of… for a gimmick?

    Here’s what my html for the image looks like… pretty much exactly what you told the other guy to do:

    <img class=”alignright size-full wp-image-4554″ alt=”agents of shield poster1″ src=”http://tvtastic.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/agents-of-shield-poster1.jpg” width=”214″ height=”317″ />

    @jimnicolson:

    There’s a sticky post with official updates at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/images-resizing?replies=4

    To answer your question, the biggest issue has been fixed, some images may still appear at a different size in the editor (but only in certain cases), and we’re still looking into the issue with captions.

    I also notice that a browser refresh corrects the problem (temporarily) and interestingly actually changes the HTML code (I inspected the Image element HTML and took a before/after copy)

    I wasn’t sure whether I can post HTML snippets in forum comments or even if they are useful but can if so…

    The browser refresh could have made a difference if you had cached an earlier view of whatever page you’re looking at while the image sizing bug was still in play.

    You can post HTML snippets, but to get the best support and feedback, if you have snippets to look at or if back and forth conversation needs to happen (which it sounds like it would in your case), it would be best if you could start a new thread, tag it with “image size changes,” and mention that I asked you to include specific details in a separate help request.

    Slightly off-topic but I can confirm an earlier poster’s observation that my subsctription to this thread dropped off after about a day.

    I haven’t had a chance to look into this (looks like a tough one to track). The best route for a bug like that one would be to create a new post, tag it with “modlook” and include as much detail as possible about what happened, including whether you have other subscriptions that are still working just fine or if they all dropped, if you received some messages before the subscription dropped, and if you have any local network or firewall filtering which could be checking links to scan for spam and actually triggering an unsubscribe (which I’ve seen happen to users in the past and it wasn’t easy to figure it out!). One test you could do would be to temporarily use (or switch to) a different email address (such as a gmail) to see if the same problem happens.

    @carlymgrace, go to Settings > Media and update the image sizes for the ones you want to make bigger.

    Uh… no. I just uploaded a photo that was 214 x 317 for a new postand have had the same results. I try to align the image to the left or the right and puts it in the center.

    An alignment issue? This sounds unrelated to image resizing. Would you mind please starting a separate help request and including a link to where the problem is happening?

    Resizing images after a theme switch was just one of the reasons. The change over was a tough call, but we think it will provide more benefit in the long run. If you need help with aligning your images, please start a new thread so it can be reviewed separate from image resizing.

    No, it’s not a different issue. It seems as if you are only selectively reading what you want to in these posts. My images resize and then align to the center. This is exactly what everyone is complaining about; images resizing and alignment changing. I used those keywords to find this thread using Google to begin with.

    Here’s the first post of this thread:

    On my first page, the blog article about eating wasp larvae: the photos yesterday were large and centered. Today, they have become tiny, and some are not centered. What can I do? Thank you.

    I altered my settings after the change and this helped, but In previous posts on my blog I have been uploading photos and then resizing them in position in the blog to get them how I want them. Those which I originally made smaller are now all appearing at the standard size set in my media section no matter what I do. Is it no longer possible to do the resizing in the way that I was doing it? If not please can you tell me how to do it? Some of my posts look very clumsy now.

    I’d be happy to help you look at this. Can you please link me to an example post on your blog where you see an image getting resized and then aligned to the center when it shouldn’t be?

    Even though the first person mentioned alignment, their issue (and all the replies and solutions after it) were about resizing. Also, the alignment in that person’s blog hadn’t changed—it just seemed like it did when some images changed from full-width to a smaller size. Fixing the resizing to make the images full-width again made the alignment irrelevant (all alignments look the same for full-width images). If you are having alignment issues, I think it’s a separate issue that may need a separate help request is all. I can help you with it if you’d like. If you post an example link, I will take a look for you.

    Thank you Shawn. I am really grateful.

    This post is an example. The photos of the black spaniel eating blackberries were in a neat line across the page rather than strung out in a row down the side.

    My images are all changing sizes too, I cannot get them to stay as I wish :(

    Awesome! One step in the right direction!

    It’s possible, but it how to do it has changed a little.

    If not please can you tell me how to do it?

    Sure! One thing you can do is remove the “size-thumbnail,” size-medium,” or “size-large” class name from any image where you want to override the Settings > Media sizes. There are a few different ways to do that, and here is one of them:

    1. Open a post for editing
    2. Click on an image
    3. Click the “Edit Image” button that appears
    4. Click the “Advanced Settings” tab
    5. Look for the “CSS Class” field and remove the “size-medium” (or size-KEYWORD) name from the list
    6. Click “Update” and save the post

    Or, if you have edited a lot of the image sizes throughout your blog, I can remove all of the “size-KEYWORD” classes for you, but note that it is not a reversible change, so you should be sure you want to make the change for all the past images on your site.
