    I’m currently creating a child of Cyberchimps’ Responsive theme, and I can’t figure out how to add custom featured image sizes to the child theme.

    I was able to do it by modifying the parent functions.php file. This is how I did it, after add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ ); I wrote the following:

    add_image_size(‘banner-image’, 1000, 500, true); // THIS IS MY NEW SIZE

    It worked, however, modifying the parent file is not the correct way of doing things, can anybody help me?

    If this is still relevant, you can create a function.php file in your child theme directory and add the code to that. That function.php file will be loaded in addition to the parent theme file.
