By default, Featured Images in Challenger display with a 2.5:1 aspect ratio. However, you can change this aspect ratio, or completely remove it.

  1. Visit the Customizer (Appearance → Customize)
  2. Click on the "Featured Image Size" section.
  3. If you want to use the default size of each Featured Image, switch the setting to "No"
  4. If you want to change the aspect ratio of the images, use the slider to decrease/increase the aspect ratio
  5. Click the Save & Publish button to save your changes

This setting will apply immediately to all Featured Images on the site.
