It's probably because the original image is not big enough. You can make the image display bigger via CSS :

    height: 320px

i use this code but it's not working....... – Smart Shovon Oct 20 '12 at 14:01
I don't know where you put the CSS code I mentioned : I don't see it on your page. To use this code, edit the wp-content/themes/periodic/periodic/style.css file and insert the code at the end. – Fabien Quatravaux Oct 21 '12 at 19:49
THANK YOU SO MUCH....IT'S OK – Smart Shovon Oct 22 '12 at 11:49
In this case, could you please mark the answer as the good one ? – Fabien Quatravaux Oct 22 '12 at 13:58

You can try something like this:

<!-- The Post Thumbnail function is active by default, but this line of php will make it display.-->
<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>" target="_blank"><?php if ( function_exists("has_post_thumbnail") && has_post_thumbnail() ) { the_post_thumbnail(array(150,150, false), array("class" => "alignleft post_thumbnail")); } ?></a>
<!--Post Thumbnail Ends-->

This part in particular will control the size of your thumbnail regardless of the size of the image:

the_post_thumbnail(array(150,150, false) 

/* width, height, option to crop 
Generally the default is set to true in order to crop the image*/

And the it is wrapped in anchor (link) tags so that if the person wants to view the original image size all they have to do is click on it to enlarge it and view it at full size.

You can also standardize your featured image size via your functions.php file. Just add this to your functions.php:


// If not the standard size, state your size too
set_post_thumbnail_size( 150, 150, false );

This will standardize the size of the featured image thumbnail size rather than putting the sizing attribute in your theme template files.

If you have changed the size of your thumbnails via set_post_thumbnail_size() the new thumbnail size applies to new uploaded images only. If you want to see the effect with existing images you need to regenerate all thumbnails. There is a plugin for this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

i use this plugin ... but it's not working....... – Smart Shovon Oct 20 '12 at 13:52
first you need to change thumbnail size in your functions.php. Did you change it there? add_image_size('thumbnail-leadimg', 610, 320, true); // Lead Image Thumbnail Size – mirage Oct 20 '12 at 17:06
yes i change it. but not working.... – Smart Shovon Oct 20 '12 at 17:56
