    Bill, I implemented the CSS from the post called “Theme Width” above – now what is the ideal size I should make my images? I was confused about that.

    Gotcha. I would make them about 1200 pixels wide by 780 or so pixels tall. For your best results you’ll probably want to make a small edit to the theme to. Here’s how to do that:

    1. Go to the Appearance section in your WordPress dashboard and choose Edit.
    2. From the list of files on your right, choose images.php
    3. In this line:
      add_image_size('slide', 960, 620, true);

      change the 960 to 1200 and the 620 to 780 and save your changes.

    That will change the size image that WordPress uses in the slider. They will always be stretched to be full width, but this will help them not get pixelated as they grow. It will only affect new image uploads. To change existing images you’ll need to run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.

    Let me know if you have any trouble,
