Post Width
850px / 1700px

Your blog posts are sized at 850px in width. When uploading images to your site, we recommend a minimum width of 850 pixels, with images ideally uploaded at 1700px in width to ensure they look crisp on 5k Retina displays. Not sure if your users access your site on a Retina display? Recent releases of Apple MacBooks and iMacs all have 5k Retina displays. But, the best way to tell is to install Google Analytics and check the stats related to Browser Settings. Here, you’ll be able to see whether users access your site on larger, pixel dense screens.

Featured Posts Width
The Miramar theme features your choice of 1 or 2 featured post boxes at the top of the Home Page. Click here to learn more about these features and sizing for these image containers.

Writing Post Captions
The Miramar theme includes styling for a image caption overlay box. This allows you to write copy and embed links directly over images in your posts, which can help highlight particular features of the photo. To use, when you upload an image for a post, simply write your desired caption in the Caption box in the Insert Media screen. The caption will be inserted into the post as text, and you can then highlight pieces of the text with any links you wish to embed!

Shopping Widget Width
RewardStyle users, size your Shop the Post widget at 900px. ShopStyle users, size your widget at 1000-1100px wide. We think anywhere from 4-6 columns looks good, depending on the product image size.

Interstitial Thumbnail Widths
These images should be sized at 760×640 pixels. This size accommodates Retina displays.

Shop the Post Plugin Width
RewardStyle users, size your Shop the Post widget at 850px. ShopStyle users, size your widget at 850px.

Page Content Width
The width of your blog’s page content mirrors that of posts. So, you can size any images uploaded to pages you create (About, Contact, etc) at a minimum width of 850 pixels. We recommend uploading at 1700px in width, for Retina displays.
