Having a Day

by wjw on June 13, 2021

UPDATE: Turns out I got my mental calendar turned around and posted my Father’s Day tribute a week early. But you know what? Now my dad can have a whole week!

For Father’s Day here in the States, I post a photo of my dad on a fishing trip taken before I was born. I know it was before my birth because there seems to be the outline of a cigarette pack in his breast pocket— he smoked with a holder, like Roosevelt— but he gave it up when I was born.

He was kind, gentle, smart, and supportive of my eccentric career choices. It’s only fair that he gets a Day every year.

(And can someone explain to me why WordPress is suddenly stretching photos vertically and producing this weird distortion? And how can I stop it?)

(Friend of the blog Oofoe helped solve the problem, for which thanks!)

For what it’s worth it looks like the width of your theme is overriding the natural resolution of the photo. You might try scaling the photo down to 516 pixels width (which is what your template seems to want). That would 516×757 resolution actual.

This comment is only intended to give you some assistance with the image scaling issue so feel free to delete. Hope that works out!

Thanks. I will give it a try.
