  1. After updating to Thematic, many of my images within posts no longer display correctly. They are resized, cut off, appear with a black portion below the image, or a combination of those problems.

    I am using the Sophia 0.9 child theme.

    Did not have this problem with It occurs in both the latest version of Firefox and IE 8. I'm running WordPress 3.0.1.

    Thanks for helping to resolve this problem!

  4. Several of the pics have become square, when they were not to begin with.

  5. I see we have a CSS specificity conflict with the cSprites plugin.

    Remove the @import "../thematic/library/styles/images.css"; and copy all of that file into your child theme's style.css

    Remove height:auto; from .entry-content img and all shoiuld be well.

    Hello em hr and edelen

    I am interested to know if you resolved your image handling issues within thematic. I am experiencing similar problems of failed image scaling, aspect ratio preservation, tables with images within not scaling to page content area and so forth.

    In my instance, it seems to be confined to when images are contained within tables and div's and viewed on IE and Firefox.

    Displays perfectly on Safari and Chrome browsers.

    Is this only addressable via implementation of a child theme filtering or is there a more elegant fix?

    Thank you for any insight on this.

    Regards, Dave

  7. Hello em hr, edelen and Dave

    The images in my website are being stretched to a larger size for some reason too and its driving me crazy because I can’t find out why, except for that it is a “browser thing” because (as Dave mentioned) it doesn’t happen in Safari or Chrome.

    This happens on pages where a list of thumbnails are shown ( AND on pages where the image is displayed in full size (

    I’m using a child theme of thematic and had already deleted the “auto” from the height of .entry-content. The plugins I use on some of these pages (Portfolio Slideshow or Post Page Associator) have nothing to do with the problem, it happens to images on pages where these are not used (and I have already pestered the developers about this problem before I realized this).

    Can anyone help? Thanks, Colette
