I am moving over to Dawn 2.0 but any images i upload as a banner are blown up to either be cropped off the page or enlarged to the point of appearing blurry. Any assistance on image sizes, ratios and the like would be appreciated.

I'm having the same problem. I saw in an older thread for a different theme that making the image 2048 x 2048px worked, so it seems like it wants square dimensions? I'm going to play around with some square sizes more to see what works best, at that dimension my actual graphic was small inside of the square and a lot of it was cropped out, so it appeared as a banner the way I wanted it, but it seems like full image might not fit right.

Same issue here. Hopefully someone can help us out. I am also trying to figure out best image banner size on the Dawn 2.0 Theme.

If you add two square images it shows them side by side to make a rectangle. I only wanted one image so I used the "two squares proportions" and made my banner 1800 px wide and 900 px high. My site isn't public yet but I have added the image so you can see what I mean.

And this works out for you?

I've settled on a square 2048px x 2048px for mine. The 1800 x 900 works ok in the desktop view but for my picture doesn't look right on the mobile view as it seems to crop it instead of shrinking. The smaller size I imagine is preferable if it works for your photos.

Thanks, I’ll check the mobile view of mine before I launch the site

This looks great! I'm creating a site for a client but the seems to be a more difficult theme to use for what she's looking for.

After researching and editing for several hours I finally found this information! 2048x2048 finally worked! Omg I'm exhausted.. lol

Thank you! Resizing with this dimension eliminated the blurry appearance once upload onto the site.
