Hello! I’ve read a few posts on this topic but haven’t seen an answer.
I set featured images for some posts, have regenerated the thumbnails, and still the “contained” setting for featured images provides a rather unfortunate narrow cropping of my image. I tried changing it to the “cropped” setting instead of “contained” but that was even worse because my images are rather large (I like the high resolution). Any suggestions?

It really depends on the images. The theme will try to generate crops at the appropriate size (configured height and calculated width – dependent on site width and posts columns count). The cropping position is also configurable (to try to position the viewpoint on the more relevant part of the images)
If you are not satisfied with how the crops turn out, you can disable cropping entirely by setting the featured image height to 0. This will make the theme display the images as they are (only shrinking them to fit the width).August 13th, 2018 at 17:13 #67287
Thank you for your answer. What I would like to do is achieve what you described in the second part of your comment. But when I try what you suggest no images are displayed at all. How can I set that parameter to 0 and still see pictures?
Thanks a lot for the helpAugust 20th, 2018 at 21:01 #67493ZedCryout Creations mastermindAugust 21st, 2018 at 09:22 #67501
Thank you for your answer.
I cleared the cache in my browser and in wordpress (I’m using the WP Fastest Cache plug in) and it doesn’t change anything.
I went back to the image editing and when I edit the image it clearly shows me that the thumbnail is the complete image but it doesn’t show up on my website.August 28th, 2018 at 23:20 #67728
I think I figured it out. I think that your technique did work, it’s just that some of my images weren’t wide enough initially so the theme is cropping them at the top instead of making it wider to fit the complete image in the thumbnail. Is that a possibility or am I completely off?
Thanks a lot for your help.
