  1. Why is my image clipped?

    When I upload the file the full image is shown. When it appears on the blog page it is clipped.

    1. Hi,
      There are a couple of possibilities. If you are posting the image as a Featured Image themes sometime crop the image to fit their layout. If you are posting in the body of a post, it may be you have set Thumbnail in the choices which will crop the photo square. Hard to say if it is either of these things without seeing the image on your site. I’ll drop you an email to get more details.
