Content Creators: Take 5 Minutes Now to save you HOURS Later
This post is a part of the “5 to save you 50″ series we’re doing here at SpottedKoi.com – all items that take 5 minutes and will save you 50 minutes or more in the next month!
WordPress is a great platform but it comes with some silly things set up. Fortunately, you can change anything!
Most content areas on a website that has a sidebar are a maximum of 600 pixels in width. Many are more like 550px or 500px. Unfortunately the default image sizes in WordPress are much less useful giving you these:
- Thumbnail: 150 x 150 pixels
- Medium: 300 x 200 pixels
- Large: 1024 x 682 pixels
- Full Size: However large your full-size image is!
So, 300 is a bit small but do-able. BUT, you can change this to your liking, here is how:
Navigate to Settings >> Media (Make sure you’re logged in as an Admin to do this). Change whichever image size you’d like! I changed the ‘Medium’ one because it was closest. Just make sure to click ‘Save Changes’ when you’re finished
BOOM! You’ve just saved yourself from having to manually re-size ALL post images in the future. Happy Writing
