Is there any way to make the header media (image) on the homepage larger than 1920×1080?
I’m using a 2560×1440 monitor but if I upload an image of that resolution I am forced to resize/crop which shrinks the image. The ‘skip cropping’ button doesn’t appear.

@barix241: Thank you for your positive feedback regarding the theme. The recommended image size for header media is 1920*1080. The skip cropping doesn’t appears because your image size is larger than the recommended image size. If you would like to increase the image size you will need to work with child theme. Let me know if you are comfortable with child theme customization, I will guide you through the process. Alternatively, you may edit the image and upload the image with recommended size. Please let me know what you would like to do.

I’ve set up a child theme, so if you could give me some pointers on how to increase the image size of the header media image that would be great!June 18, 2019 at 2:45 am #175191SkandhaParticipant
@barix241: Hello there,
I tried a 2560×1440 size image as the Header Image and it seems to be showing up fine. Can you please post in your site URL so that I can look into the issue. After uploading the image select the whole image while cropping.

Hello! Whilst uploading an image larger than 1920 x 1080 does work, the resolution is reduced. So if you upload a 2560 x 1440px image it will get reduced down to 1920 x 1080.
Anyway, I’ve solved the issue: I just needed to edit lines 53 and 54 in /inc/header-background-color.php
‘width’ => 2560,
‘height’ => 1440,
Obviously best to do this in a child theme.
Many thanks!June 19, 2019 at 1:51 am #175250
