    Short of editing the raw page via MySQL, I’m stuck.

    I’ve chosen the largest website screenshot for this image (1,000px wide should be PLENTY since the space is 600px). In spite of deleting and reuploading the image etc. the portfolio page is calling the 274x930px option, making the image incredibly blurry. Is my only choice to go into MySQL? http://kirindesigngr.com/portfolio/quill-marketing-site/

    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.

    So once the plugin is installed, just go to settings > media and you will see all the settings. Look them up and down, there are about 12 in total, and one of them will have 274×930 or 930×274. Change it to the size you want. Save. Now you need to run the regenerator. if nothing happens that means low wordpress memory, So delete one of your images and reupload the original again in its place and you will see its working.

    Thanks,

    Nick
