    Hi,

    When I upload a portrait photo to my blog, it seems as if the photo is being stretched to fit the container.However, if I put the images in a gallery or 2 columns it seems much better. Is there a way to fix this? I size my photos as 900px x 600px?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Hi there,

    Is there a specific page where the issue can be seen?

    This is what I’m seeing and it looks good:

    Hi Leo,

    It is throughout the blog pages. The images appear so large on desktop but fine for mobile. I came across this blog where their photos are 1440×1800 and they look good on desktop. I feel like my photos are being stretched to the content width maybe. The real pixel size should look smaller. I size the photos 900×600.

    The blog I am attaching below has much larger images than how I size my photos, but yet they appear so much smaller and the quality of the photos look good. If I size my photos 1440×1800 they look huge! I want to size my photos by 1200px to have a better quality photo, but the photo looks giant and takes a while to scroll down.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Sorry is there a specific image you are referring to here?

    I don’t see any images being stretched.

    There isn’t a special setting to resize the image when the core image block is used as well as it is a static image and not a background image:

    Do you get the same issue when using a Twenty series WP theme?
