When turning the mobile phone sideways (horizontal view), only text gets adjusted to the horizontal screen, but the images do not automatically enlarge and most of the images stay the same size as they were in vertical view. From time to time, one or two images may enlarge, but if they do they look visibly cropped in a very narrow horizontal format.
What should be done, so the images get larger and proportionally adjust to the horizontal screen and when they do, they don’t get cropped, but maintain the original look?
Thank you.

Hey there Igor2189

This has to do with the resolution of the images. Some of the images are relatively narrow, and taller. These won't change much in mobile. Others are wider images, so when it is turned horizontal and has more room, it will expand and crop length-wise. My best recommendation is to have you edit these images outside of the builder to change the dimensions or resolution of the pictures to have it display differently.

I love your site by the way, your portraits are amazing!

Thanks Elyzabeth. How would you adjust the image of, let’s say, my Columbus painting (multi figurative painting), so in the sideways mobile view it fully adjusts to the screen and expands horizontally without being cropped at the top and the bottom?

Hello Igor2189

This unfortunately isn't a definitive answer I can give you. You might need to add a border to the top and bottom to give it different dimensions, but it would really be a matter of trial and error to get it to display that way you want it to.

I have been trying everything for a very long time...  So, I would really need a clear direction! Could you forward my request onto someone who would be able to help me with this issue?? Thank you.

Hi there Igor2189
Again, this isn't something I would be able to tell you to set your image to specific dimensions. It really comes down to the fact that some of your images' layout are portrait and some are landscape. You would need to find a way to make them all the same to have them all act the same in the mobile site.
