    Hi

    I would like my portfolio archives (or categories) to display the full size images which you will see if you click on the portfolio thumbnails (they fill the whole width of the container). At the moment they are display the thumbnails and it looks a bit silly with all the white space on the right of the page. It would be good if they can be displayed full width as they are in the demo.

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    Please compress your images. http://www.cutecreations.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/AIW_Book_Slide.png should be 30-40k and not 340k.

    You can install this plugin but it takes an extra step to setup so read the instructions http://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/ which will automatically compress while you upload.

    Alternately you can go here prior to uploading and allow PNG files to be compressed http://tinypng.org/

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi,

    The best way to go about it, is to first install the Simple Image Sizes plugin ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/ ). The plugin will give you complete control over images: setting constraints for specific locations like blog, thumbnails, portfolio, gallery, shop, etc. along with the ability to set whether to crop an image or not in Settings > Media.

    Changing the dimensions of images does NOT automatically change all the images already uploaded but only affects new uploads. To change the sizes of images already uploaded, you will need to use the Regenerator – also a part of the Simple Image Sizes and found on the bottom of Settings > Media. Don’t forget that images scale down, so always upload images bigger (or the same) as the constraints you set in Settings > Media (with the plugin) or you will get blurry (stretched) or incomplete images.

    You need to find there the size 296×208 or 294×207 and change it to a width you want (700px for example) but set the height to 9999 and add no crop. This way the the image will be proportional with a height matching 700px width in the images original aspect ratio.

    Thanks,

    Nick
