I am using the Responsive Blog theme. When I add a featured image, the image shows up very large before my post. I don't want that, but can't seem to get it removed. I have

Marla,
Valerie and others have given you the answer. Some themes automatically add a pic in the left hand corner. Yours seem to be one of those.

You can change the theme or just do not insert any featured image.

I had the same problem when I changed my theme to GeneratePress. This was caused by inserting an image at the beginning of each post and then adding the Featured Image.

Now, I just add the Featured Image.

I have removed the image at the beginning of each post with the result being no more double images.

Thanks, I guess I will have to mess around with it some more.

It's theme ralated. My theme didn't display a featured image, another theme displayed it twice, I recently changed the theme to Weaver Xtreme, and I can change simply everything I want, with, and without, featured images on the archive and on the category posts, awesome experience.

I think I might have to look at a different theme. I was hoping not to change it.

Open a test website with your theme and see what you can do, when anything goes wrong, you can delete it and start over again, you can also check out other themes

Thanks. I will try that.

My theme does that, too. I used to put a picture in the left-hand corner of my post. However, it looked strange since the featured image appeared up there, too. So I just let that featured image be the start of the story, and actually now I kinda like it.

Have you looked in the "customize" section? That's the one place where you might be able to change it.

I have searched everywhere looking for a place to customize it, and can't find it.

I checked both my websites, and the "customize" feature is listed under "appearance." Hope that helps.

I have been there, but can't find anywhere to change the featured image.

Look for ways to change your first page; perhaps that will give you something you can use. It may just be your theme.

The only thing that I can suggest is to delete your featured image and simply add the image in the content where you want it.

Someone else may have a better solution where you can keep your featured image and get the look you want!

I have done that, but I have a blog roll, and I like the look better with a featured image showing.

Have you tried Simple Image Sizes plugin? Once you have activated the plugin, navigate to Settings -> Media. Among all the additional image sizes, you should find the one that’s dedicated to the featured image and adjust the sizes...hope that helps

Thank you, I will take a look at that.

You are welcome ☺️

It's the theme that determines how your featured images are shown. If you can't customize the theme the way you want, then try a different theme. I recommend Weaver Xtreme.

I might have to change the theme. This is the 2nd theme I have chosen, and both have the problem. I can't find anywhere I can customize it.
