    I need to have the house shown on the homepage/featured image, and I have tried using the recommended 1600×600 size and it completely cuts off the house. I have resized it more times that I would like to admit and I still can’t get it to fit appropriately.

    Any suggestions?

    It looks like the image being used has not been cropped to 1600×600. Here is the original image:

    The theme will take the image and automatically center crop it to 1600×600. Here is the auto cropped image:

    For more control over the image crop, you can crop an image using an image editing program like Photoshop. You’ll want to make sure sure to upload the new image and then reassign the header image to use the new one.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks for your help. I had actually resized the image to recommended 1600×600 originally, and then was trying different sizes based off the recommendation from WP. I’m just trying to find a way where the entire image will fit in that spot somehow and not have the sides or top and bottom cut off. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Unfortunately, given the composition of the that particular image, the house take up a majority of the image not leaving much to be cropped off on top or bottom to fit different image sizes.
