Image Sizes

July 28, 1995 ·

Using image sizes the right way is key when wanting the Old Newspaper WordPress theme to look like an actual newspaper.

We are utilizing the default image sizes in WordPress to make your transition from a different theme as smooth as possible.

Large Images

For images that you want to span the entire width of your newspaper article, use Large size. This will ensure it both stretches all the way out

Large size in action, covering the full width of the newspaper article.

If Large doesn’t show up as an option, it is because the image you uploaded was originally smaller than the width of Large. In that case you should use your image at Full Size instead, making it as wide as possible.

Quick tip: Always center align the images that span the entire width of the article, otherwise it will act unexpectedly with the surrounding content.

The Medium size, floated left, right and centered

For the rest of the page we show off a few Medium images floated both left, right and centered. Medium size always cover 50% of the article width, both on mobile and on desktop.

Quick tip: Make sure you have enough text after an image before you left or right align them. Otherwise your article might look messy. (Just give it a quick look before you publish.)

From here on we are using Lorem Ipsum dummy text, to show off different image alignments. Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text, commonly used when designing before you have content.
