    Hi,

    The ideal dimensions would be those configured in the settings (the height) and computed based on the post display options (content width and posts layout).

    Thank you! I was able to locate the image height in settings.

    I understand the width will adjust based on size of the browser window and/or device. If possible, could you give me the minimum width for featured images using this theme? We are looking for a “title-safe” zone when designing graphics. We want to avoid any text cut off on the sides. Currently, our post layout is set to two columns and our content width settings are:

    Theme alignment: wide
    Site width: 1120px
    Left sidebar width: 320px
    Right sidebar width: 320px

    Thank you!

    If you’d prefer exact numbers, you can use our (unpublished) SysInfo plugin to see the exact image sizes currently registered on the site based on the configured options.

    I also suggest to configure the featured image behaviour option to contained to ensure that featured images are shrunk proportionally without visual cropping on smaller (than site width) screens.

    Setting the height value to zero and behaviour to contained will also instruct the theme to skip featured image processing entirely and simply use the attached images as they are.

    Our featured image behavior is already set to “contained” but I will try setting the height to zero and I’ll check out the plugin. Thanks for the info!
