Comment (by niallkennedy):

 og:image is an RDFa array, allowing multiple suggested values for a page.
 If the story extractor is not happy with the images it finds, via
 meta[property=og:image] or a regular img element, it may keep looking for
 a larger image.

 The post images should not be downsized unless over 5 MB (or 1 MB if you
 want Twitter to use og:image as its fallback, or specify a separate
 twitter:image to target separately). If you use a large WordPress image as
 the last option, after the post images, then it can act as a fallback
 before the body is scanned for img elements of a desired size.

 3.8 launch example:

 VideoPress 640px poster frame passed to imgPress to upside to 692

 A WordPress.tv image with a 122px width downsized to 90px for some reason

 Large images associated with the post downsized
