Hi I am using Magento version 2.0.6

I have a live version of the site and a local version running on my pc which i use for testing. as i make changes to the local version i deploy it to the live site.

I'm having a problem on a project i'm working on. The store side images of the live site for products are displaying extremely large and somewhat blurry and i cant seem to find a solution.I need the live site to display the products like the local site.

The problem is that the pictures on the live version are blurry and enlarged (see screenshot below of live site) Problem The product pictures on my local version are displaying fine (see screenshot below of local site) enter image description here Also note that on the live version its displaying 2 products per row and on the local its displaying 4 products per row.

I have compared all the settings in the admin panel for both the live and local sites and they all are the same.

I have did the following things:

  • I flushed and refreshed all the magento 2 cache types
  • I cleared my browsers cache
  • I ran the command php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  • I ran the command php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
  • I ran the command php bin/magento indexer:reindex

My only conclusion is that it has to be a css or javascript setting? is there a file i can navigate to and modify perhaps?

Please note that more than one person works on the site.


The size of the product images is set in this file {theme_directory}/etc/view.xml

For example :

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<view xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/view.xsd">
        <images module="Magento_Catalog">
            <image id="category_page_grid" type="small_image">
            <image id="category_page_grid-1" type="small_image">
            <image id="category_page_list" type="small_image">

  • I have checked that file and compared it to my local and they are exactly the same. Would running the command php bin/magento catalog:images:resize help in this regard? – Jiyaad.D Aug 10 '16 at 11:34
  • I'm uncertain if that command will help or not. Does changing the values I posted above have an effect? You'll need to flush the cache after making changes. – Aaron Allen Aug 10 '16 at 19:31
