Pictures across different blogs and browsers not displaying properly

  1. I often have a problem with pictures appearing enlarged or shrunk until I refresh the page, then they are sized normally. Here is an example:

    It's not a browser issue because it happens across different browsers (Internet Explorer 9 on a laptop and Chrome on tablet)

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Oh, I forgot to mention it happens on other blogs as well. It just didn't feel right to post screen caps from blogs that are not mine.

    Does anyone have an idea why it is happening?

  3. Could you please provide a link to a couple of example posts where you're seeing this happen so we can investigate? Thanks!

  4. Thanks very much for this, I'll investigate and keep you posted.

    The last screen cap looks like a repeat of the first but this is definitely enough to go on for now.

  5. Since WordPress upgraded their behind the scenes how-tos, I'm having trouble editing one of the pages on my blog. I want to replace one image with another in the same spot as the previous image. I delete the 'old' image, click in the same spot where I want the 'new' image, and browse a new one. But when I hit 'insert' it insists on loading at the top of the page, not where I have the cursor. Why can't I upload an image exactly where I want it now? Please help.

    Thank you,
    Marianne C.

  6. You are right, sorry, here is the correct screen cap for the third example

  7. Hi mariannecoyne - since your issue is a different one, would you mind please starting a new thread so we can help you there?

    Thanks for your cooperation.

  8. oegukeen - the next time this happens, would you mind viewing the browser's source and copy-pasting what you see there?

    In IE9, you can do that by clicking Alt-V-C

    Paste the source code into a pastebin here - - and then send me both a link to the pastebin, a link to the post, and a screenshot as you did above.

    Thanks for your help!

  9. Of course, here it is:

    The three images should all be the same size, 100x100 pixels. They are situated in the top row of a 2x3 table.

    Thank you.

    I am having a problem inserting a picture anywhere that I want it - all pictures go to the top of the page. sometimes the size changes and sometimes not. I have not left a new post up - it is a mess. the blog I am having trouble with is

  11. onesmallstitch - help with that issue will be provided in this separate thread:

  12. oegukeen - thanks for this! If I may ask you for one more thing - this screenshot doesn't seem to have any content in it:

  13. That's strange, it worked fine a few hours ago. I tried to upload it again

  14. That one worked - thanks! I'll keep you posted.

  15. mariannecoyne - your issue appears to be a problem specific to Firefox 16 or earlier versions. If you can, upgrading to Firefox 17 seems to solve the problem.

  16. kathrynwp, I just wanted to let you know I saw the same issue on and

  17. Photo problem here this morning. Running on latest Chrome. PC with Windows 7. Even though I size my photos to large, when inserting they are gigantic and run across the entire width of the post, past the right sidebar widgets. No matter how many times I try and resize or reduce the percentage of the photo, it is still gargantuan. I've refreshed, saved draft adn refreshed several times but to no avail.

    I have not published this post yet so I can't send a link to it. It's m erely saved as a draft until I can find out how to solve the problem.

  18. PS: the photos look fine in the edit mode, they look appropriate to the page. It is only when clicking preview that the photos double in size.

  19. I don't know if this is visible to you, but here's a link to the saved draft:

  20. Hi eosresurfaces - have you managed to fix this? The first time I looked at your draft I saw the too-large images, but now they're gone. Let me know if you have another draft where the problem is still happening as I'd like to show our engineers. Thanks.

    oegukeen - do you have a link to a post where this is happening so I can have a look?

  21. oegukeen - thanks for the screenshots. We are investigating.
