    Hi Shri (or others using this theme)…
    I can’t seem to find directions indicating the ideal dimensions for blog feature images. Could you clarify? TY! KK

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delayed response as i was travelling. Ratio images like 150 by 150, 200 by 200 or 300 by 300 should work.

    If still not working show us the blog url and we will check and let you know.

    Regards,
    Shri

    Hi – No worries, Shri. Here’s the site url: http://www.kktest.com
    I’m confused by your reply — dimensions for blog post feature images typically aren’t square…
    I need to know ideal pixel width and height for inserting a feature image into your standard post (and page) templates. Other themes I’ve used typically provide that information in documentation, but I can’t find yours…

    (Example: Expound Theme has a large feature image default of 460×260. Other themes suggest a standard width, but will adjust the height.)

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi,

    1600×400 should be fine for Blog featured image.

    Regards,
    Shri

    OK…I’ll set it at that aspect ratio. However, I’m still a bit confused. The space available for a standard blog/post feature image looks like it’s only 680pixels wide, maximum. Why would we want to set embedded feature images so much wider — 1600 pixel width? Just curious. TY!

    Can you show us where you used the featured image and how it appears?

    Regards,
    Shri

    All is well, Shri — I sized the feature images for all blog photos for a 2-column width template in the blog – 640 pixels seems to be ideal for the space (and for SEO), so I’ll stick with that for blog posts. http://www.kktest.com/reimbursement-resources/reimbursement-insights-blog/
    TY!
