Twenty seventeen header media on homepage not responsive

I have made a site with the Twenty-seventeen theme and it looks good on the pc, but not on my smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy A3-2016. What happens is that the homepage header photo is scaled in width, while maintaining the same height, and this looks ridiculous. Can you look into it and make sure the aspect ratio of the home page header photo remains constant?

Thanks and regards, Ronald

Hi @queensyd

Reviewing the TwentySeventeen theme the header image is setup as a background cover and meant to keep it's height. To keep it's aspect ratio it would need to be an inline image.

This appears to be a design decision for the bundled theme so am marking for closure and moving to the Bundled Theme component for a 2nd-opinion.
