This widget is very helpful when building Loop Items, because it takes 100% column widget by default (fig. 1.2):

Also, The7 Image widget has such a unique setting as a Template Overlay (fig. 1.3):

Overlay template is a layer which covers an image on hover or constantly. You can create it under Templates -> The7 Overlay (fig. 1.4):

When the template is created, you can select in under “Overlay Template” settings tab (fig. 1.5). You can also choose whether this overlay should be displayed always, on hover or never.

Most of styling options of this widget are the same as in native Elementor “Image” widget, except the size settings (fig. 2.1):

You can limit the max width of an image and configure image width/height ratio. If image ratio is specified, the “Object Fit” setting shows up. It allows to decide how the image should be resized to fit its container with the chosen width/height proportions. You can read more about the Object Fit values in the official documentation.
