#5309: All photo media reduced to 300px wide

 I've tested with several WordPress themes plus my own to make certain this
 is a core problem.
 My site (brandwares.com) uses fluid design to fit a multi-column design to
 the browser width. I've ported this to my WordPress theme.
 When I add media (almost always a screenshot), I set the picture width to
 100% so the picture fills the width of my fluid layout columns. WordPress
 over-rides this with:
 **sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px"**
 The result is a 300 pixel wide downsampled image that either doesn't fill
 the column width in my theme or fills the width with a blurry image in
 Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Seventeen, Twenty Nineteen and Twenty Twenty.
 Here is a sample page that shows a screen shot mangled by WordPress:
 Neither result is acceptable. I am not going to spec a picture width in
 pixels, because that is bad practice in a fluid design. When I spec 100%
 width, I expect the picture to be 100% width at full resolution. Please
 fix this glaring defect and stop making your own private version of HTML
 on my site.
