Reducing the size for an event post featured image

Hello – The featured image size will not go down in size when it posts. I chose insert as a thumbnail but it still blows the image up and makes it take up a lot of space (plus makes the image blurry). In EE3 the post images were small and several posts fit nicely on the screen. Please advise.You can view the post here:

Hi Angela,

In EE4 the events are custom post types which means your theme has a lot more control than with EE3 (EE3 events are not custom post types).

Multiple sizes are loading on the page (which is to be expected) but if you are uploading a small image it will display that as it’s the largest and theres styles in the theme’s styles to load the image with 100% width:

You can use some additional styling to prevent the image from stretching, like so:

.single-espresso_events .c-entry-featured-image img {
    width: auto;

However, thats not going to load at 150 by 150 (thumbnail) if that is the size you want to actually use?
