How to fix it?

Solution #1

If you know a little bit of CSS, you can add an image class to your child’s theme style.css file through the “Editor” under “Appearance”.

A CSS example would be:


.my-img-class
{
margin: 5px;
padding: 5px;
border: 10px solid #a7060f;
height: auto;
width: auto;
float: left;
text-align: center;
}

Then you would add “my-img-class” (without the quotation marks) to the field “Image CSS Class” under “Advanced Options”.

This solution, however, may not work perfectly depending on how well your theme is coded.

For an alternative, you can use a plugin, explained below.
