Image preparation

Images must be cropped or reduced to a reasonable size and optimized for the web. Maximum size is a little bit flexible but width should be no more than about 1000px and maximum height about 700px. Images larger than this won’t display on most screens and just slow down the page load. WordPress will automatically make three reduced-size versions of the image: a thumbnail (100×100), a “medium” image that is used for the tiles (240px wide) and works well when included in text in the Content block, a “large” image that fills the full width of the Content block (640px wide). You will have a choice of which image size you want to include in your page after you upload it, but galleries use the full size images.
