How to Set Default Image Sizes in WordPress

Default Image Sizes

WordPress offers four sizes to choose from for displaying your images: thumbnail (150 x 150), medium (300 x 300), large (1024 x 1024) and full size (the full size of a certain chosen image). You may want to change these default image sizes, for example if you want to make your images the exact same width as your content or to make images fit in your chosen WordPress theme. You can certainly change the maximum dimension of the images diplayed on your posts and pages. Our tutorial helps you to make different default image sizes for your WordPress site or blog.
