How do I change my front page background image? Whenever I insert a new picture it zooms in and the picture is blurry. I’ve tried resizing, maybe somebody knows what I’m doing wrong? The original dimensions of my image are 3648 × 5472. I’ve tried resizing to what it says (1600 pixels wide and 1050 pixels tall)
What the heck is going on? I’m so confused on why they are distorting and zooming in essentially.December 4, 2016 at 11:01 pm #20106EricCustomer
Can you post a link to your site so we can see the issue?
Also, not sure where you got the
1600 by 1050size from, but the recommended size is `1800px width and 1200px height….That’s the size in the Demo. Your image doesn’t necessarily have to be this size exactly, you can use whatever size you want just make sure it fits and looks right.

It’s actually not live at the moment, but now it won’t even display the picture I uploaded into the customizer. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?December 5, 2016 at 1:47 am #20110
Here is an example of what I mean by “zooming in” it seems as if it uses a very small and concentrated portion of the photo, thus making it very difficult for me to get a photo to look the way I’d like.
This shows the photo in the context of what is being excluded when it is on the background. You can see that much of the photo is being left out, leaving a blurry and awkard focus on the picture that I don’t want. Imagine this photo being fitted perfectly into the actual home page background area. How do I get that? Does that make sense?December 5, 2016 at 5:54 pm #20138EricCustomer
It’s looks perfectly fine on my end. Is it possible to send a screenshot of what it looks like on your end?
Also keep in mind that Responsive Background Images have to adjust themselves to scale for the Visitor depending on the size of their browser. If you resize your browser (shrink and/or open it wide) you’ll see how your Image will adjust to fit the screen the best it can without becoming too stretched or distorted.
When I look at your homepage (assuming that’s the page you’re referring to) the image isn’t distorted or blurry at all. The Theme itself isn’t distorting or blurring your image, it’s showing it exactly how the image is. Here is the direct link to your image – http://www.mrandmrsdodd.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/rsz_img_0979-1.jpg If you compare the image link itself with the image on the site they both look exactly the same.
