problem with the size of my vertical photos in Duotone

    I started a blog on duotone this week, and I had no problem to post my photos. But today I edited my two last posts in order to change a thing (not to show sharing buttons), and when I made the update and view the post, the vertical photo appeared with another size (more little), thing that I don’t like at all.
    I don’t understand why it happened. Maybe I modified something involuntarily? I can’t manage to put it like it was before, as others vertical photos in my blog… Can you help me?
    Thank you so much if you can do it!

    The blog I need help with is


    I confirm, when I edit my other vertical photos in order to remove the sharing buttons, they become narrower…
    And now all my new posts with vertical photos are like that… I don’t understand at all… Help!



    That’s the way portrait-shaped images are supposed to show up in Duotone.
    You’ve been uploading huge files: this way you waste your storage space, and you get worse quality on the post (because images downsized by WP lose some color and sharpness). Before uploading images, you should downsize them using an image editing application (or an online tool). See here (note 4 near the bottom) for maximum and recommended pixel dimensions:


    Thank you so much for your reply.
    I understand what you are saying, and it is true that the quality is better that way. What I don’t understand, is that from the beginning, I always uploaded my photos in a medium size. But now the vertical photos are appearing narrower than before. Why?

    Here an example :
    My last post :

    And one of my first post :

    I would like to be able to choose how I want them to appear on my posts. Do you know how I can do that?



    You’re welcome.

    Frankly I don’t know how you managed to fool the theme into displaying the image as in the second example you linked to. As I’m saying in the post I linked to, the theme is coded to display portrait-shaped images at a maximum of 560px wide. And it makes sense: at the size you seem to prefer, a portrait-shaped image can’t be viewed in its entirety without scrolling down or zooming out.
    The “Thumbnail”, “Medium” etc. options have no effect in Duotone.


    Ok, so my first posts weren’t at the normal size. I don’t know how I did that! I just posted them in a very simple way. It is quite strange.
    If there is only one size, that’s ok, I have to accept it. And you are right, that way it is easier to view them.
