Learn how to make a Genesis child theme compatible with the full and wide width image sizes of WordPress block editor.
Among the features of the WordPress block editor, there are 2 new ways to display images.

The block editor introduces 2 alternatives: wide width (alignwide) and full width (alignfull).
In the first one, the image takes up a little more space than the page container and in the second one it takes up the whole width.
In order for them to display correctly in the block editor you must give them support in your Genesis theme and CSS styles.
Instructions for supporting full width images
