I hope this finds you doing well.
As a test I created multiple to pages using the Single Portfolio 2/3 template and used different image sizes. And regardless of what image size I pick or option I select from the Slideshow Image Size, the theme is scaling the image to 666px width and varying heights.

I updated my post to make it more clear and provide examples.
Can anyone help me please?
I have over 50 images with descriptions that I have to upload by tomorrow.
Thanks in advance.January 30, 2014 at 12:11 am #216686
This is the correct and intended effect. What the image size selection does is let you choose what image size gets loaded in to that container. It will always be 2/3 the width of the content area because its in a 2/3 column.
If you want to change the size the image is viewed on the page then you would need to change its container size.

Thanks so much for responding.
Apologies if I’m a little dense but your answer isn’t clear to me…
If the images I upload are 211×312 because that’s the original size and I select to NOT scale them, why is the theme stretching them to 666px x some random height; whereby making them very pixelated. :-(
Not to mention it doesn’t matter what selection I make via Slideshow Image Size, the theme still stays at 666px width.
Sorry I’m not following but your recommended fix doesn’t make sense to me because I’ve tried multiple images with different sizes – keeping the “No Scaling” parameter.
How do I get this to work exactly like the theme demo? (i.e. Home / Portfolio / Portfolio 2 Column / Single Portfolio: 2/3 Slider) What parameter/setting was used? And do I have to use a specific image size to start with?
Thanks for in advance.January 30, 2014 at 3:41 pm #216976
A few moments after I typed my response I found a solution (or I guess what you were trying to tell me?)
-Created a PNG file with transparency
-666px x the height of the original image. So since these particular images (that I was having problems with) have a height of 312px, I made the canvas size: 666×312
-Copied the original 211×312 image to the 666px png; centered it
-Uploaded – keeping the “no scale” parameter and now the images are appear as they should.
Thanks again for responding.

The images get loaded into the container and then are stretched to fit that container. This is how the theme keeps everything “responsive”.
So the size you select is only the size that is actually added to the html for that specific set of images. The container will always stretch the images to fit that area where the slideshow is added to the page.
I updated the text next to the dropdown in the theme files so that it will hopefully be a bit more clear.
Your solution is what I usually recommend if you need to use smaller images than what the layout would typically show so I’m glad you found it already :)
