I just installed Optimal and an starting to setup and migrate a non-Genesis site to the Genesis Framework using your theme. Is there a specific setup tutorial online foe this theme?
My specific questions have to do with image sizes. When I installed Genesis Responsive it defaults to an image size of 920×400. Is correct for Optimal?
Also if I use Featured Pages/Posts what is the default thumbnail size to work with this theme?

Clarify … I have found ot that the correct size for the slider image is 1140×400, but creates some problems.
In the Featured Post Widgets in Home Featured Posts Widget area the thumbnail size is 247×125 which is not proportional to 1140×400. I would like to figure this out. I have the same problem on another WP Genesis site.March 20, 2015 at 7:48 pm #15377kronosCustomer
The default for the Optimal theme is 1140px, since that is the width of the theme itself. The Slider plugin you’re using has a default of 920px, but you’ll need to change this to 1140px.
Download a plugin called Regenerate Thumbnails and run that plugin anytime you change the size of your images/slider. it will automatically adjust the size of your images to the size you have specified in your settings.March 24, 2015 at 8:02 pm #15406
But what I do not understand is that the slider is not proportional to the Featured Widget Thumbnails. It would take a slider image size of 1140 x 577 to be proportional to the Featured Image size of 247×125, but all I have read indicates the slider should be 1140×400. Can you clarify?March 25, 2015 at 11:48 pm #15428kronosCustomer
Do you have a link to your site as an example so I can take a look at what’s going on?
The slider images shouldn’t affect the Featured Widget Thumbnails.May 12, 2015 at 4:45 pm #15817
Sorry for the lengthy time out but I just started developing again. I have created a Random post for an example with a slider image (slider size 1140×400). If you scroll down the page you will see that the image that displays in the Featured Area is not proportional to the slider.
In all fairness, this happens on other Genesis themes using a Featured Widget area.
Look at this other site of mine: http://www.wumcriegelwood.org … Images are cut off in Featured widgets.
Really hoping to understand exactly how to fix this display problem.
