WordPress picture/image size different between browsers

Hi, we just use wordpress to develope a new website. What we are noticing is that if we use Internet Explorer 10x some pictures are exteamly large and take up 3/4 of the page being displayed. If we go and view the same page using Chrome or Firefox. the picture size appears correct, meaning it is a small picture.

Can anyone offer advise on this ? It certainly must be wordpress, server side control. I am just not sure were to look.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of Wordpress as of 10/17/13

So a browser made by a company notorious for not following or supporting web standards renders something differently than the other standards-compliant browsers and it's WordPress's fault?

Ok.

Enable the developer console on IE and reload the page.  What errors or warnings are reported?

I'd bet that the images are actually that large size and that where Chrome and Firefox are paying attention to the width and height you're setting IE10 is not (it's a known issue) so the images are displayed at their actual size.

If my assumption about your image sizes is correct, you can either add some inline CSS to properly size the images or you can resize your images.

If you can go the CSS route, the code you'd add would look something like:

<img style="height: 56px; width: 128px;" src="/your/image/here.jpg" />

Open in new window

You're just adding the 'style' to the img tag, and IE10 should respect this.  You can leave the other width/height settings in there or remove them...though the CSS will override them.

As it's Wordpress you might have to get deep into your template to add this to it - wherever these tags are being created.  If you can do that then it's quicker than resizing your images.  And if you're not comfortable with that, then resizing is easy.

One last thought: Try a different template if you can and see if the issue fixes itself. It might be that the template author simply didn't take this into account. And there could even be a newer version of the template that fixes it...which would certainly be the easiest solution!

I hope that helps.

Hi Jason, in reference to my question, I could see how the context would point fingers at wordpress. But, what I was really trying to say is that I believe Wordpress was smart enough to know that these types of issue would pop up and that perhaps they would build in a setting that would force a picture size etc. That's all I was saying and hoping the case would be.

I'm just pointing out (correctly, it would appear) that your gut-level-troubleshooting needs some fine-tuning :)

Even if we were to accept that IE misbehavior should be handled by the CMS, this still isn't a WordPress core issue. Image size defaults, etc are handled at the theme level and anyone can write a theme poorly.  Funkmotor is correct above...switch themes, see if it resolves.  If so, you have a theme issue.

Thanks Jason & thanks to Funkmotor too. We'll go ahead and try to use Photoshop to set a standardized size to the pictures in question but we;\'ll also try a different theme too :- )

I've been using this service for 8 years I've never heard anyone complain about caps in a title. Personally I think that if someone complains about that they're just too sensitive. to all involved thank you for the valued input. The resizing of the pictures using Photoshop was the solution

We ended up using Photoshop to resize the photos accordingly. Thank you for the advise.
