    Hi there,

    Yes, wordpress will take the source file as the reference so unfortunately you would need to lower the file size of your image since its loading the full size of 2000px as the source.

    Thanks,
    Brendan

    Okay. Is there a way to work around that automatically or will you fix that with an update?
    What is the mimimum size of that picture, that it has a good fit in every viewing situation – also on the event’s page?

    Hi there,

    Its not really an issue with updating since this is just standard for WordPress. Fit depends on your theme so you may have to play around with different sizes to see what looks best. In regards to file size, you want your images as small as possible. Best is to keep images below 200kb in size.

    Thanks,
    Brendan

    But why don’t you think about using the thumbmails wordpress offers for the events pictures? This would be a nice update – also for other customers. Can you please implement this?

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.
