WP changed format of my pictures? - Why??

  1. imaginaryfears

    Hi, could I please have help with this issue on my blog? Every entry includes a photo and every photo is out of the size I set them as. I've tried to edit them back but it is not working...


  2. imaginaryfears

    Sorry, here's the link..

  3. This issue is not completely resolved yet. Users like niarb who have images in the excerpt field are still having issues with enlarged images.

  4. My blog is also having problems too!

    The first two post pictures are correct size, but after that the photos are huge! Please help!

  5. Mine is still broken can you please fix mine

  6. To iamtakashi:
    OK, so should I wait for the issue to be fixed or is it better just to kill all the images in the excerpt field, in your opinion?
    Thanks man!

  7. Hello,
    I have the same problem on my site . Can you also help me to fix it?

  8. Everyone up to this point has had the fixer script run on their blog, so the issue should be gone.

    If you still see the problem, please let us know!

    niarb, it looks like the excerpt thing is still an issue.

  9. Thank you very much for this very fast help !!!! :))

  10. Hi - I'm having the same problem:

    I have to ask - if someone at WP made a change that apparently messed up everyone's pictures, why does the correction have to be on a case-by-case basis? It seems to me there ought to be a systematic solution that doesn't require everyone tracking down this thread to ask to get things fixed.

    Just my $.02.

  11. @macmanx,
    I am still having the same problem, it has not been fixed yet (my blog is

  12. Hi macmanx, so what should I do? Remove the pix from the excerpts from ALL my 34 articles or just from the ones (Featured, or Sticky) appearing in the home page?

  13. Thanks a lot. Everything is OK now

    Hi. You were able to fix this issue with my blog yesterday but today I added a new photo to one of my pages and now it is not appearing as formatted. Can you please fix this and is this going to be an on-going problem?


  15. qagedave I agree, but it's actually only affected a small amount of blogs out of all 25 million here, and running a script like this on everyone simultaneously would probably knock every blog offline.

    niarb, you could try removing and re-adding, or just hang in there until we find a fix for you.

    victoriabelanger, this shouldn't be on-going, and the tool can't find any more images to fix. The images on that page also appear to be displaying as desired. While on the subject though, have you considered uploading smaller images (speaking of the jello photos)? Most of your images are about 8x larger than the width of your blog, so you're going to run out of upload space and need to purchase a space upgrade if you continue at this rate.

    I have run the fixer again on all blogs up to this point. Hopefully that has taken care of them.

    If you still see the problem, please let us know!

  16. It appears that many bloggers are not aware of what the maximum displayed image sizes for their themes are and have been uploading over-sized images. The maximum displayed image widths by theme are listed in the article I linked to.

    I just noticed some of my pictures in old posts are showing up full width on my blog as well. I had them to display at various sizes for text wrapping and the edit view is still correct.

    Will you please fix mine too?

    Thanks so much!

  18. I too am having major issues with the images displayed on my blogs, with over 700 pages of content and 10,000 images I would appreciate and definitely require the fix applied to my sites.

    Please find the sites at the following addresses:


    Thank you

  19. @macmanx

    I did some testing. Removing the pix in the excerpts now shows a correct homepage (with right sized thumbs). However, all other lists are obviously pictureless, which I don't like at all.

    Re-adding the pix recreates the problem.

    I think I'll wait for your solution, then. Thanks!

  20. elmonstruodecoloresnotieneboca

    Same thing here.

  21. I have the same problem - just noticed it.
    Images as well as videos don't have the correct size anymore.

    I would be so thankful for help as soon as possible,
    as my entire blog is a complete mess at the moment.
    I am really desparated...

    Thank you so much in advance for your help.
    I hope my blog can be fixed too very soon...

  22. addition:
    I had posted this issue in a separate thread before,
    and then received the link for this thread from wordpress by e-mail.
    I hope it's ok that I wrote here too...

  23. tiempodeternura
