    Hi. I’ve just started a new blog called ‘Truthseeker’ and completed a recent post called ‘Mt Tamborine – a glimpse’. The theme I’m using is called ‘Hatch’. The image is great on the post page, however, on the home page you can’t see the entire image. In fact, you can’t see much of it. Could you please advise how this can be fixed? Do I have to change the image size. I’ve already decreased the pixel size down to 800×533. With Thanks…Kerry.

    The blog I need help with is photosbywarnholtz.wordpress.com.

    Hi there, Hatch uses 440 x 300 thumbnails for the front page display. Your mountain image is in a landscape format, so Hatch crops it to fit 440 x 300 dimensions.

    If you wish to control the exact appearance of the front page thumbnails, I recommend that you create a 440 x 300 image to be used as a thumbnail for your article and set is as the Featured Image for the post.

    Thank you Jenia. I thought it may have been that. Much appreciated. Kerry :)

    Hi Jenia. I’ve just changed my photo to 440×300. I noticed that the ‘home’ page photos are in a ‘landscape’ size, whereas the featured image in the post is as is. Is it possible to get the full photo on the ‘home page’?

    Thanks.

    Hi Kerry, I see that you reduced the dimensions of your photo. It is now 293 x 440, so it is cropped down to fit the 440 x 300 thumbnail. The thumbnails are set to that size in the Hatch theme.

    In fact, you don’t have to resize the first photo in your post. What I’m suggesting instead is to create a version of that photo that would fit 440 x 300 dimensions (you’ll need to crop it so it’s landscape), then uploading that photo as the featured image to be displayed on the front page. Does it make sense?

    Ok. I’m with you now. Home page photos are ‘landscape’ dimensions. Thanks. :)
