How to enlarge your featured images


Last week I had a lovely lunch with Cara Santana of Caradisclothed.com. Not even a minute in we were knee deep in blog talk and strategy – we couldn’t help ourselves!


After I help her upgrade theFEED on her mobile site, Cara asked me a blog question.


Cara Santana: How to enlarge your featured images

The Question: How can I make my blog post featured image larger on my desktop site so it’s more engaging for my readers?



I agreed with Cara that large images are more engaging for your readers. You can change your featured image sizes by going to Settings > Media. After you do this you will need t update your featured images for all your previous blog posts to this new size as WordPress will just make the new featured images the new size.


To do this, download a plugin called “Regenerate Thumbnails“, this allows you to bulk change all your featured images!
