Image sizes for text widget - Astrid

Hi Roman and friends

I’m working on a client site, currently locally hosted, using a free version of Astrid.

I would like to have a half width image displayed next to a half width text widget on the homepage.

For the image I have used a Text widget with no content, and using the Styling options have added a link to an image in my media library for the background image and made widget width half width. All OK except the image looks terrible. No matter what size image I add it looks magnified. I have tried the 640 x 333 px “w1.png” that is used in the Astrid demo but that looks terrible too - magnified and doesn’t sit in the middle of the widget as it does in the demo.

I have tried using the SiteOrigin Image widget which looks much better but doesn’t look good when the site is minimised to tablet size.

Is there a fix please?

many thanks


Hello Bibs,

Please try to use something like the code below as a content of a Text widget.
<img src=""/>

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.
