Hello, We set up our site with the sitefinity blog and have a "featured image" or maybe better known as an author image for each post. We used this thread to get everything setup. The ability to upload an image works perfectly, but the one issue we are having is that it is resizing my images down. Here's a rundown of what is going on and what I need: I have a 290px by 290px square to work with on the main blog page, I just want a featured image that is no smaller than that. I can crop the ends of it off with css and overflow:hidden. Currently when I upload an image it is getting resized down to a smaller size. If I right click and view image it shows the extension as .jpg.tmb every single time (or .png.tmb depending on the file). I do not have any resizing options set on that media library or on that particular image, yet it is still adding the .tmb extension like I have it resized for thumbnail. I just need the full size image to upload and display there. Is there something that was done in the thread above that is causing this that I didn't catch? Any help is greatly appreciated!!! In the attachments you can see the size difference. This even happens if I upload the image through the Content --> Images and just click "Choose from already uploaded" on the blog post page.
This behavior still applies to 7.2. I am doing this very same thing using two image fields described here - one for the list of posts, and one for the actual blog post. Our blog layouts were designed with a specific size for each image so we need to be able to use the actual image that was uploaded and not a re-sized version.
Please advise and how this can be done.
