I'm running the Balance theme on my site (http://heavenandel.com) and I'd like to have the images show up under the title, the same size as they are on the demo theme.
From reading elsewhere here on the forum, I gather that this needs to be 600x200 but where do I need to set it as such in my theme settings? And what should I set as the thumbnail size?
Many thanks in advance for your help,

Open up your functions.php file. Look for the area for image settings. Add this in there:
add_image_size( ‘featured’ , 600, 200, TRUE );May 10, 2013 at 12:15 pm #40346
Thank you 🙂 I did that but it doesn't seem to have done anything. I checked under the general genesis settings and see that the 600x200 is now listed as a choice for the size of featured image so it has done something, but not what I was hoping it would 🙂
Any ideas what I'm missing? Thanks 🙂May 10, 2013 at 3:20 pm #40378
Open home.php and look for this:
genesis_grid_loop( array( 'features' => 1, 'feature_image_size' => 0, 'feature_image_class' => 'align none post-image', 'feature_content_limit' => 0, 'grid_image_size' => 'grid', 'grid_image_class' => 'align none post-image', 'grid_content_limit' => 0, 'more' => __( 'Continue reading...', 'genesis' ), 'posts_per_page' => 5, ) );
Where it says "0" for feature image size - change the 0 to the word "featured" (but without the quotes I put).May 10, 2013 at 3:21 pm #40379
Oh... you might need to put it like this - 'featured'May 11, 2013 at 2:42 pm #40505
Thank you so much ... 'featured' did it for the home page.
Not wanting to push my luck but, I was looking for something similar on functions.php (because Balance doesn't appear to have a single.php) because now the images are showing on the home page but not on the single post page but I couldn't see anything that might do it. Any ideas?May 11, 2013 at 2:55 pm #40509
The Featured Image doesn't automatically show up at the top of the posts or pages. That is something you have to manually do.May 11, 2013 at 3:01 pm #40510
Ah, ok, thank you 🙂 I've had themes in the past that, when you set a featured image, they showed up on the post so I wondered if this might be the same. Thanks so much for all you help 🙂
Love your themes 🙂 I almost went with your pretty theme but I needed something responsive.May 11, 2013 at 3:03 pm #40511
Oh, I haven't created any of the themes. I am just a volunteer moderator for the Community Forum and do custom edits.May 14, 2013 at 4:04 pm #40915
Ah, sorry, I saw the 8 in your Twitter handle and though you were the lady from 8 crazy designs. My mistake. 🙂
Thanks again for all you do here - much appreciated.August 25, 2013 at 1:06 pm #58745
I wanted to re-surface this post, as I too am having image size issues with this theme, both with my featured images in a full size post, along with the teasers (grid).
The default functions.php included this:
/** Add new image sizes */
add_image_size( 'grid', 295, 100, TRUE );
add_image_size( 'portfolio', 300, 200, TRUE );
I added this to the end of that per the conversation above:
add_image_size( ‘featured’ , 600, 200, TRUE );
Yet my featured images still appear whatever size the featured image is set. My understanding was that even if the image I set as "featured" is 900x500 (making up a number), this function would resize it to 600x200. Any ideas?
