WordPress Thumbnail function when used in themes, automatically adds width and height attributes to the image attachments, which may create problems with a responsive layout. Take a look at the highlighted section in the below given code, that’s what I’m talking about:

<img width="300" height="200" src="http://localhost/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/attachment-thumb.jpg" class="attachment-post-thumbnail wp-post-image" alt="Attachment Thumbnail" />

In such a situation, WordPress developers want those highlighted, hard-coded width & height attributes snipped from the image attachments. It can be achieved by adding a few lines of code to the functions.php of our theme. Grab the code below, paste it in your functions.php and save the changes:

function remove_thumbnail_dimensions( $html, $post_id, $post_image_id ) {
$html = preg_replace( '/(width|height)="d*"s/', "", $html );
return $html;}
add_filter( 'post_thumbnail_html', 'remove_thumbnail_dimensions', 10, 3 );

After saving the changes, you will receive image attachments without height and width attributes in the markup. Hope you found it useful. Thanks :)
