    	img, a img {...
    		/* MODIFICATION
    		height:auto;
    		width:auto;
    		*/
    ...}

    Correct, pako69: if you change this parameter, will change the proportions of all the other images, even the image of the related articles. We need to find another solution to resize a photo. Thank you!

    Hi!

    This is how the theme ensures that images respond to the screen size and layout as it changes. The best way to insert your images if you want them a specific size is to re-size the actual image to that size before hand.

    Hum… perharps for a webmaster, yes, but what about our clients ? I can’t imagine to tell us : ‘please use Photoshop to resize your images before upload them to you websites” !

    Resizing image in wordpress is a built-in feature of wordpress that anybody use, and you have juste removed it with two lines of CSS :(

    Yes, you have add many pictures sizes within your templates, but it can’t be used for all the images, in my site (a magazine), the pictures has never the same sizes…

    “The best way to insert your images if you want them a specific size is to re-size the actual image to that size before hand”

    Furthermore, many images need to be viewed at full resolution: the features of WordPress is designed precisely to use the lightbox…
    I can not imagine full resolution images in a blog post…

    Hi!

    You can always use the built-in WordPress media editor to resize/crop images.

    Best regards,

    Personally I think the percentage change is a way for users to unintentionally weigh down a page by re-sizing full res images which in turn adds unneeded bloat to a page. There are a few ways to approach it otherwise:

    – Use column shortcodes to wrap your images into the size you want them and the content into the layout you want.

    – You can also add your own image sizes to WordPress so that you have them as a selection when adding an image to content. You can do this for your client(s) so they then have choices. This plugin lets you do that from within WordPress http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/

    When adding in an image where you want to link to a full resolution you should and can link to that full resolution even while inserting a thumbnail of the image. This prevents the page from needing to actually load in the full resolution image in the first place (how galleries work).
