WordPress: How to make sure images are the correct size

Note: if your previous theme was also from pipdig, then you do not need to follow the guidance on this page. You’re good to go!

You may notice that after installing a new theme or update, that the images in certain features look blurry. For example, the Related Posts section. To fix this, you should regenerate your site’s thumbnail images whenever you install a new theme.

How to regenerate your site’s thumbnails

1. Firstly, you should go to Settings > Media in your dashboard. Check that the sizes are set to the numbers shown below:

2. Go to Tools > Regen. Thumbnails

3. Click the button.

Regenerating your site’s thumbnails might take several hours if you have lots of images. You may wish to leave it running in a tab whilst you work on the rest of your site. You can edit any other section of your site whilst the process is running in the background.

    Hi Phil,
    I have Evelyn Rose downloaded. The problem is my images are appearing very small on my blog post. how do I get them to appear full screen? (To look like the images in the Evelyn Rose template that you show). They aren’t taking up the screen.

      Hi Milly, when you add an image to a post you should select “Large” or “Full Size” from the options – https://i.imgur.com/7X7ur3c.png. I’m guessing the images are currently set to a smaller size.

    Do I need extra resize/smush program for imagines or this tool will rezise automatically when I uploade new imagines?
    Thank you!
