Follow these steps:

1) Copy showcase-child directory from inside showcase/themes to wp-content/themes directory and activate it. Go to Appearance -> Menus and set your desired Primary menu.

2) Create functions.php in showcase-child directory and paste this code:

<?php

add_image_size('index-thumbnail', 298, 244, true);

3) Copy showcase/loop.php to showcase-child/loop.php and edit it.

Replace

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

with

<?php the_post_thumbnail('index-thumb'); ?>

That’s it.

Refresh your site’s homepage and you should see clearer and correctly sized featured images. If not, regenerate thumbnails.
