Inconsistent teaser heights can happen to anyone, no matter your age, gender or ethnicity. Previously there was no known cure for this malady; users simply had to use their image editing skills and trial & error to ensure a consistent height.
But no longer! Thanks to our brave engineers, a new innovative way of standardizing teaser sizes has been released: behold! When editing a teaser zone, you can now choose from three image size templates: square, tall, or wide!
After choosing an image size, your teaser images will be standardized regardless of their original height and width:
Below you can find previews for each of the three options you can choose from (plus the original for comparison). We recommend trying each of them out to get a feel for the look of each in the particular zone you're editing, but generally speaking, if more of your images are taller, go with the Tall option; if more of them are wider, go with Wide; and if it's a bit of a mix, Square is a great call. However, your preference and design sense are what matters most!
