What size image is recommended for the blog posts? What is the maximum size image that can be used without resizing? The theme keeps resizing the images I set as featured images.
Is there a way to control the thumbnail that is displayed in the single author small blog style? As it stands, the thumbnail is showing images that i don’t have control over, so they’re getting cutoff in unacceptable ways. I have attempted to crop the image and set the thumbnail size in the wordpress media library, but the theme doesn’t seem to be picking up on it.
Do you all have any documentation that helps users understand how to work with images within the theme?

If you are referring to this kind of blog:
That would be any square size, 180×180 for example.

Thanks. Yes, I believe I am referring to the type of blog pictured above. However, it’s not functioning the way I anticipated. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong or my expectations are incorrect.
I was expecting the theme to use one image size on the blog pages (a thumbnail) and a different image size on the post pages. I am performing the following steps: 1) uploading an image to the wordpress media library. The size of this image is 710×360 (which i believe is the max size allowed by the theme for a post image). 2) Setting a thumbnail for the image within the wordpress media library with a square size as described above. 3) Adding the image as the blog post’s featured image.
With these steps, I was expecting the theme to call on the large image for the post image and call on the “thumbnail image (smaller square image) for the blog page. This is not happening. Instead, the theme is using the large image and cropping the image to a square resulting in awkward unusable images.
Are my expectations incorrect? If so, is there a way to make the theme use the large image for the post page and the thumbnail for the small image on the blog pages?

Is this what you want to achieve?
Blog (small image):
Single (Large image):
But you’d want to have control of this image, for example:

I modified a line in the loop theme file, here’s the result (the thumbnail image is being selected now):
