I need to modify this front page at www.theonedollarchallenge.com to show a smaller image in the center of the page.  Changing the size of the pic, doesn't seem to have any effect.

This is a Wordpress site with this theme http://alxmedia.se/themes/hueman/ called Hueman installed currently.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

The 'post-thumbnail' class in your CSS is telling the image to go to 100% width which means 100% of the containing <div>.  I was able to make the image smaller using Firebug but that doesn't change the size of anything else.

Dave, thank you.  So what would be the best way to approach the change?

You'll have to adjust the setting in your style.css file on place 815, change "width:100%" to width:auto ...

Seems like Dave was faster :)

You can add a style attribute to that <div> that sets a different width.  However, since that is a 'responsive' layout that changes the size as the screen size changes, you would probably have to change 30% to 50% of the CSS to make that center column narrower at all sizes.

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Nope.  Too much work.  Real, pain in the head, work.  A quick look to find where the base of your problem was told me that I would not do it that way.

Maybe someone else can give you more help.  The CSS for that theme is pretty complicated.  It's too much work for me to be doing to answer a question here.

Click on "Request Attention" above to get some others to look at it.

When I looked at the theme, what you are seeing with the larger images is what the theme is designed to do.  

Do you want the image smaller because it is blown out? If that is the case, upload a larger image.  

Or do you want the text to wrap to the left or right of the image where the image perhaps takes up half the space?

Or do you just wan the image to take up less space vertically?  If that is the case, you can do some creative cropping of the image before you upload it.
