thanks for your emphasizing the important parts of the documentation for us again – sorry for missing that lightboxing thing. Thanks also for your suggestions and for offering manually resized variants of these images. However, going to an image editor for that is not something we want to add to our workflow ;].
Nevertheless, we would like to share what we did and some observations we had when doing so: When trying to find larger alternatives of the images in question and uploading through copy & paste, it looks like Discourse is limiting them to
690x-wideness on purpose. Bummer!
However, after bumping the defined sizes manually just slightly in the markup, the headline-image-expansion (formerly called image-to-banner-expansion) works flawlessly. You can see that the images are actually large enough and we believe it will only work for images which are actually larger than being designated by Discourse.
We tried to outline it by showing what we did to the following two posts.

Now, we just might accept what we are observing and will definitively be happy that it works when keeping these little rules in mind. However, may way humbly ask about how we could improve the situation wrt. to Discourse limiting the image size after upload? Do you observe the same behavior we are seeing here?
Thanks again for building and sharing this Blog Post Styling component which just adds so much style with so less effort.
With kind regards,
P.S.: We skipped the headline-image-expansion for the post about the Neoway LoRa modem altogether as we haven’t been able to finder larger images, let’s just forget about that guy.
