    What is the best size for an image placed in a post?

    I looked in the documentation but only saw measurements for thumbnails.

    The blog I need help with is:

    Hi there – the thumbnails are created automatically from the images. Because all of the thumbnails are landscape format – landscape images work best.

    The images in the blog posts can be whatever size you like. At full width the main column width is 701 except in the full-width layout where it’s 916. As such – as long as the images are at least 916 wide they will fill the whole width of the blog post.

    Personally I would go wider, aim for 1000+ and then you know the full size will always be used. To be honest just uploading the highest quality possible is fine, and then WordPress will select the appropriate sizes for you.
