    I’m designing the site to represent my photography and design portfolio. All Items have different sizes and I would like to present not cropped images, when they display in Ajax gallery or in blog gallery post (Right now the main image is squarish).

    Is it possible, that main image in gallery would follow original aspect ratio of my photographs, say some of the galleries would be horizontal, some square, some vertical?

    And I’m not that great in programming, so I’ll be grateful for the simple explanation. Thank You :)


    Hi Eve!

    Thank you for using the theme!

    Before doing this, please test it on a dummy site. First, edit functions.php, find this code on line 98:

    $avia_config['imgSize']['gallery'] 		 		= array('width'=>710, 'height'=>575 );						// images for portfolio entries (2,3 column)

    Replace it with:

    $avia_config['imgSize']['gallery'] 		 		= array('width'=>9999, 'height'=>9999, 'crop'=>false );						// images for portfolio entries (2,3 column)

    This will make sure that the theme will not crop the images and accept all proportions. After that, add this on Quick CSS or custom.css:

    #top .portfolio-preview-image .avia-gallery img {
    float: none;
    padding: 7px !important;
    width: auto;
    display: inline-block;
    #top .portfolio-preview-image .avia-gallery .avia-gallery-big-inner {
    text-align: center;

    Regenerate the thumbnails using this plugin:



    Well, it didn’t make any difference. Maybe my explanation was not correct. Let me add couple of pictures (I editing site with Enfold on localhost)

    This is how vertical image look in the standard ajax gallery
    This is the way how my images look in Ajax gallery

    And this is the way how vertical image looks in the blog gallery
    And this is the way how they look in the Blog gallery

    As of now I can’t use vertical images in galleries at all. And I like width 710 px, I just need to change the height to show the whole picture.

    We need to see the site live in order to help you debug this issues.

    Best regards,


    I have very slow internet connection on phone so I made a test site.

    Ajax how it looks now and how I would like it to look, if possible.

    Blog gallery same request

    By the way, I did like when featured images for all portfolio items were in uniform squarish size, as it was before I applied first suggestion :)

    Thank you for the update.

    Did you regenerate the thumbnails? Go to Tools > Regen. Thumbs. The suggestion above should prevent the theme from cropping and resizing the gallery images on the ajax portfolio.



    Hey Ismael,
    I applied your suggestion again on test site, it didn’t work there too. You can see it here

    I applied the code in child theme/function.php



    Thank you for the update.

    I tested one of the images on my end and as you can see, it is showing the full image:

    I checked the test page but the thumbnail size of this image for example is still cropped: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -700×575.jpg

    Please add this on the child theme’s functions.php then regenerate the thumbnails again:

    function avia_change_image_size_array() {
    global $avia_config;
    $avia_config['imgSize']['gallery'] = array('width'=>9999, 'height'=>9999, 'crop'=>false );						// images for portfolio entries (2,3 column)
    add_action( 'init', 'avia_change_image_size_array', 1);

    Add this on Quick CSS or custom.css:

    #top div .avia-gallery img {
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;

    Best regards,


    Hi Ismael,
    This time it worked :) Thank You so much!
