    Hi there.

    First of all, thanks for a great theme, I really love it. 🙂

    1. I was thinking if you have a recommended size for images in the posts? (So I’m not talking about the sizes for the thumbnails or featured images, which I can find elsewhere.)

    2. I read somewhere else that you recommend no more than 1280 px in width. Does that apply for this theme as well?

    3. Will the images in the posts downscale for mobile view? Or will it mess everything up if images are set to full size? (Max 1280px)

    4. I saw somewhere else, in the forums, that you recommend a resolution of 72 ppi. I just tried that, but I find that compared to 240 ppi, the quality is really poor and grainy. However the size difference was only around 20 kb. It seems to me to not be too much when the total size is still below 100 kb. Could you elaborate on this please?

    Thank you so much!
    Sorry for all the questions.


    Hey again, ignore my 4th question. I found out elsewhere that the resolution settings in Photoshop Lightroom has no effect on screen. Only on print. (At least as far as I could understand.

    Still interested in the other questions though. 😉


    @Casper: Thanks for your appreciation.

    1. There is no such recommended size for your image in the posts. It depends on the layout you have and the style that you want.

    2. Sorry I don’t get it what you mean. In this theme, the slider width is about 1600px width but the content width is 1250px with 30px padding. So, the content will only have 1190px width. See this demo http://catchthemes.com/demo/adventurous/sidebar-layout/no-sidebar-full-width/

    3. Can you post your site URL and explain then I can check in. The image size will not be resized but it will show the image in responsive. So, it will look good in mobile devices as well. Just make sure that your images are not too large to make it heavy for site load.

    4. For image compression, you can use service like jpegmini.com to generate compress image. The size of the image in not that issue, if you have good fast speed server with CDN support.


    Thank you Sakin!

    I decided to just make the images in the posts 500px and then with the option to click on them for a bigger version. Then the images will stay relatively small in size but big enough to see what’s actually on the pictures.

    With the width you mention it doesn’t seem like I will have any problems with images being too big.

    The site is not public yet so it only shows “Under Construction”.

    I will look into jpegmini you mention.

    Thank you for your time and help!
