    Hi there,

    I’m having an issue with featured images. I marked a post as sticky and gave it a featured image with the dimensions that the slider displays (602×200). However, when the image is displayed in the post, it is cropped at a different ratio so it doesn’t look right – people are cut in half, etc.

    Is there a way to control what displays in each area?

    Thank you!

    Hi there!

    Unfortunately, you cannot control how the Featured image is cropped.

    If you have the Custom Design upgrade, we can help you remove the Featured images from your single posts. If you would like to do this, please let us know.

    I’m sorry this isn’t the answer you’re after :(

    Thanks, Scott. That’s helpful to know.

    I do have the custom design upgrade. I’m assuming that the fix would apply to all posts, though?

    Hi again :)

    We can provide you with the code to remove the Featured image from all of your post, or, if you would like, we can remove the image from specific posts, too.

    If you would like to remove the Featured image from specific posts, please provide us with a link to each of these posts.

    Thanks!

    Hmmmm, I’m curious. If the dimensions for the featured image are given as ‘no more than 602×200’ what then are the *exact* dimensions that the Featured Image crops to? This can’t be random? I don’t notice it re-sizing at all….so it’s static, no? I would really like the image that appears there to look exactly as I’d like it to. If I had an absolute dimension that would help enormously.

    What am I missing? (btw it’s a really great theme….kudos.)

    Thanks.

    Hi J.D.

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    The specific dimensions for the Featured slider are a width of 602px and a height of 200px.

    I hope this helps!

    Well, since you answered that…..answer this….who the heck got into my ps and set the dimensions at 602 x 300? What I’m apparently ‘missing’ is my frontal lobe. So sorry (hangs head in shame)

    I see what the orginal poster is talking about now (the image being cropped in the post itself) and I can see how it might be irritating to some; it’s a ‘whatever’ issue with my site though. I was obviously having a problem with the dimensions of the featured image only (duh).

    You guys certainly earn your $ the hard way; not only a great theme design but then there’s the ‘people’ side of it as well. Thanks for being so available (and patient!) through the support forum (you’ll see me again, but I’ll pay really close attention next time before posting).
