In functions.php, it appears that the maximum height for the slider thumbnail is 395px. But if my featured image is square, the slider image does not get cropped. It is appearing with the same dimensions as the original image–as a gigantic square image (1140px by 1140px) on my homepage. Shouldn’t it automatically be rendered with a max height of 395px?
Please advise if there is a problem with my installation or if this is the way it is supposed to work. I’ve done a fresh reinstall already with the same results. Thank you!AlexanderParticipant
A rectangle of 1024px by 395px is the maximum dimension an image is cropped for the slider, as the slider always uses the full length of the blog, which is a ratio of 2,6. Any image that is not matching this ratio will be extended or reduced proportional in heigth and width, until the width of the blog is reached. Thats what makes your picture huge – works as designed.

I read about this in another post and was directed to a video about the slider. The video was showing the image size as 580×300. That is why my images were being expanded. Thanks for giving the correct dimensions.
