First of all, I really appreciate all the help resources you provide through your documentation, videos, and support forum. I believe I have learned more in the past week than I would have through any of the other theme providers I considered.
I have reviewed your documentation for image sizes/thumbnail sizes and use of the post grid to create a portfolio and will trying that next. I would like to confirm my understanding of a few points and have a couple of questions regarding images sizes before I start uploading some sample images for testing.
Is there a recommended maximum image size to upload to the media library and will be presented in portfolios, sliders, and lightboxes)? Full resolution images from today’s DLSR’s can create some massive images.
When using a 4-column post grid in the Alyeska theme, are the thumbnail images hard cropped to 240×150?
(1/4 Column of Grid – 240×150 (hard crop)
When clicking on a thumbnail from the post grid (portfolio) that has been configured to display in a lightbox, which image size (of the ones listed on the Alyeska product page) will be used. After reviewing the demo, my assumption is the lightbox images are soft cropped, but I am unsure what size is used:
Slider Full Width – 940×350 (hard crop)
Slider Staged Left/Right – 530×312 (hard crop)
1/5 Column of Grid – 200×125 (hard crop)
1/4 Column of Grid – 240×150 (hard crop)
1/3 Column of Grid – 320×200 (hard crop)
1/2 Column of Grid – 472×295 (hard crop)
Small Thumbnail of List – 195×195 (soft crop)
Small Square – 130×130 (hard crop)
Smaller Square – 70×70 (hard crop)
Smallest Square – 45×45 (hard crop)
