Stop Divi Featured Images from Stretching

This post may contain referral links which may earn a commission for this site

By default the Divi Theme will stretch featured images to the width of the post area. If you'd like to disable this and have the images display at their actual size, you can do so by adding the following CSS to the theme:

body.single article.has-post-thumbnail > img:nth-of-type(1) { width:auto !important; height:auto !important; }
body.single article.has-post-thumbnail .et_post_meta_wrapper > img:nth-of-type(1) { width:auto !important; height:auto !important; }

  4. Thanks! Super helpful. Here's the code to reduce the image to 70% instead of the original size and center it, while having it be 100% for mobile devices.

    /* modify blog post image size to be 70% */
    @media all and (min-width: 768px) {body.single article.has-post-thumbnail > img:nth-of-type(1) { width:70% !important; height:auto !important; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; display: block;}
    body.single article.has-post-thumbnail .et_post_meta_wrapper > img:nth-of-type(1) { width:70% !important; height:auto !important; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; display: block;}}

      • Hi Gennifer, are you still having problems with this? I can see the featured images on your blog posts are currently not stretched, and set to 25% width / left aligned. I'm not sure if this is what you were hoping for or not. But if not, let me know how you'd like to have them displayed (width, alignment, etc) and I'll try to help. Thanks!
