My guess is that you need to add height: auto to your CSS.

That actually worked. Thank you!


A little bit more background on why that worked in case you were wondering.

Ghost automatically adds height and width attributes to images in posts. This is essential for optimizing your site because it prevents jankiness when loading (where the page moves in the middle of reading it) and allows for smart lazy loading.

Because of these attributes, though, you need to specify that the height should be set to auto based on the image’s width.

Here’s an article from Smashing Magazine that goes over all this in more detail.

Importantly, I’m glad it’s working! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
