Upload Cropped Thumbnails for Featured Images

If you want to maintain a consistent size for your post featured image, I would recommend turning on the thumbnail creation for the blog layout you choose. There are more than one thumbnail settings available, but if you do not plan to change your blog style, just choose the one for the layout you are using.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options >> Thumbnail Settings
  2. Look for the “Crop Blog Featured Images” setting and make your choice. For example, if your blog layout was set to “Grid Full Width“, then choose the “Crop featured images for the Grid blog Layout” choice.
