Make Featured Image Automatically Size to Fit

  • Dena Rice

    When I upload images and set them to Featured Image, I have to keep resizing them to fit on my front page slider. If I don’t resize them before I upload them, they don’t fit. (They are repeated or they are too large, etc.)

    Where can I click to make all images or all Featured Images autofit?

    I’ve checked and unchecked in Media Settings> Crop thumbnail to exact dimensions (normally thumbnails are proportional) with no change.

    Thanks for your help!

    The theme automatically crops your featured images to fit within the slider, but this cropping is performed by WordPress and as you have discovered, it’s not perfect. The reason is there’s simply no way for (not yet at least) WordPress to know which part of the image you’d like to keep and which part to crop out.

    So yes, the best way to ensure that your images fit in the slider as you intended is to crop and resize it before uploading it. Or you can use the Post Thumbnail Editor plugin.
