    For anyone else curious, there are 3 ways images are controlled:

    1. By you – in the widget your image sizes are determined first by the width of the column the image sits in, and next by the image ratio you choose in the featured image option

    2. Settings -> Media – many layers widgets and templates call the default images WordPress creats on upload. The dimensions for these are set by you in the Settiners > Media area of your WordPress Admin.  If you change these options, you must install and run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin which you can find under Plugins > Add New

    3. Layers registers a small set of custom image sizes which are used when specific combinations of column width and image ratio are set. To change these, you would need to register your own dimensions for these by ID via a child theme or extension, or register a custom set of your own for use in a custom widget or template. See add_image_size()
