The Columnist theme is best suited to having one single ‘hero image’ that supports the story or article — much like a newspaper. The image above is an example of the hero image.
Unlike The Columnist v1.0, the images in displayed in the latest version of the theme require less manual, specific image dimensions. The hero and thumbnail images are displayed to scale the full width and height of their container — whilst maintaining their proportional scale. All you have to do now is set just one featured image for the post.
- Hero Image: 1000 × 575px
- Thumbnail Image: 320px × 440px
- One-column width: 726px
- Two-column width: 355px
- Three-column width: 235px
Images and The Grid
You can easily insert images into your posts by using the regular
<img> tag. Your image is automatically re-sized in relation to the column structure being used. To demonstrate this, a single image below will be used for each column scenario. To learn more about defining the post column structure you can check out the Text style post.
