When I use the standard WordPress gallery, I get very small thumbnails in the content:

enter image description here

Since there is lots of space in the content, I would like to display bigger images. How can I do that? There is no specific gallery code added in the theme.

Either use one of the other built-in image sizes, for instance

[gallery size="medium"]

or "large" or "full",

and/or customize the sizes for "thumbnail", "medium", "large" under Settings > Media,

or add a new image size and use it

[gallery size="newsize"]
