Resize Images for WordPress
When adding images to your WordPress website, it is important to make sure that you resize them appropriately. An image that is too small may be stretched or distorted when uploaded to your website, while an image that is large may also be distorted or affect the design of your homepage. To avoid any problems with distorted images, make sure to size the image first.
