On September 20, I noticed that suddenly many images on my blog were suddenly displaying too large. In some cases they were displayed at several times the size at which I'd set them. Images previously paired side-by-side at equal heights, for example, were now alligned vertically (one on top of the other) with the size of one or both enlarged. This issue appears to be affecting all posts and pages on the site containing images which have not had the default size tags, created when inserting media, removed from the CSS class line of the image editor advanced settings module.
I'd previously noted that for many months, perhaps a year or so, images marked "size-full" in the CSS line of the image editor > advanced settings module were displaying at full size no matter what dimensions I entered into the width and height boxes of the module. This was troublesome because my practice is to typically alter the dimensions of uploaded images from the default sizes. This is particularly necessary when pairing two images side-by-side as I often do (I also create rows of three images or more on occasion). I'd been aware of that issue for some time and had it under control by always removing the "size-full" tags which would sometimes appear by default. I'd intended to inquire about the default CSS size tagging, but it wasn't urgent, just a nagging inconvenience.
On September 20, on my first visit of the day to the site, I notice that suddenly (The problem wasn't present on the 19th.) half of my images on the front page are displaying too large, in some cases several times the size at which I had set them, and in one instance ten or twenty times the set size. Investigation of these images soon revealed that all of the expanded images, those displaying larger than the width and height settings, included a "size-medium" tag in the CSS line of advanced settings. The issue is likely affecting thousands of images on my site. It would take me dozens of hours to go through the entire site and remove all of the default CSS tags of "size-medium". Most if not all of the default "size-full" tags have alreadly been removed painstakingly over a series of months.
1. Why must any size tag be inserted into the CSS class line of the image editor advanced settings module by default? For those like myself who like to modify the sizes freely and frequently, and seldom use the default size options, this demands that we remove the size tags from each uploaded image, at least those marked "size-full" or "size-medium".
2. Why would those images with "size-medium" tags in the CSS line of the image editor advance settings module display at full size? And why did they suddenly begin to do so on September 20?
