What are the ideal image dimensions to use in my theme?

It's hard to define exact image dimensions for each theme as different people have different preferences for how their content will look. 

Based on each theme's demo site, we've tried to note the recommended image dimensions, often with the minimum recommended width/height noted. 

You're very welcome to use images that are larger than noted below, as WP will crop/re-size the images to fit their respective containers nicely (logo images may be a different case). 

Please note that using very large images where it is not necessary can affect your site's loading speed and may even cause image uploading errors.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to open up a new support ticket and let us know!
