    Hi there,

    We have been very frustrated trying to set up our site, which includes a “featured projects” page to showcase our business’s recent jobs for our customers to check out. When we add images from the jobsite, some of which HAVE TO BE VERTICAL in order to capture the scene, we are disappointed to discover that they are cropped to horizontal aspect automatically, cutting off most of the image! Please get back to us as soon as possible with the workaround for this. We need to be able to have featured images that retain their original aspect ratios, whether horizontal or vertical. Otherwise, the site is useless. I understand you want to keep things “proportional” in the theme, but if customers can’t ever use vertical images without losing most of the picture, what is the point?

    Please respond, and many thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is


    Hi @lindsayventures. Images in the featured slider will always be cropped and featured images set on images will also always be cropped on the home page. Images that are contained within their normal body content will not be cropped. We’ve gone back and forth on whether or not to stop cropping non-slider featured images but there are too many blogs using the theme right now to make the change without a huge impact to users. Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.
