Image display error before employing Lightbox with Platform.

I installed the free version of Platform at the end of last week and am really taken with it. However i do have a couple of problems I would like to resolve if possible so I will start with the one which is giving me the most concern.

I don't know if this is a Wordpress 3.5 or a theme issue because I have recently updated both. When I insert an image into a new post it doesn't automatically re-size to suit the theme. It posts a near full-size image but only the left hand side of it can be seen until you click on it to employ the Lightbox.

I am using WP Lightbox 2.

 

The displayed dimensions are coming out like this.

 

1,000px × 750px (scaled to 613px × 750px)

 

This is how the post text display reads.

With my previous theme and with 3.4.2 I could post from my Blackberry and the image would automatically re-size perfectly. Now it doesn't.
Can anyone help me with this?

 

I have had to edit all the previous posted images so they work but would love to make it work like it used to.

The whole media section had a huge overhaul for wordpress 3.5.

 

If you think you have found a bug posting from blackberry try it in the default wordpress theme and if the issue is still there then you should post a bug here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/

 

Neither PageLines Framework or the Platform Pro series add, remove or change uploaded file sizes.

Thanks Simon, I have a strong suspicion it could be a Wordpress issue but having just changed both I wasn't sure.

 

BTW, its not just images posted from Blackberry. Its also images posted from my PC as well. Not such a problem when you are sat at a PC because you can edit the post before you post it.

Its not a case of changing the file size, its purely down to how it is displayed. Most of my more recent images are 1,000px × 750px and automatically resized to around 600px × 450px. For some reason it is scaled to 613px × 750px giving a distorted image. It looks very much like it is resizing the width but not the height.

Hi there, this definetly seems to be a wordpress issue, lots of people seem to be having the same kind of problem on the wordpress forums.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

I have just changed the theme to Pagelines Lite and it works a treat on that theme.

In that case, I'd suggest updating to PageLines Framework (the paid version) and experience all the added capacity Framework provides.
