I would like to get an option, to crop images when creating thumbnails (right now the original ratio is used).
Isn't this the same as: http://support.imploded.com/discussions/topics/9000013349/page/last/# ?
When thumbs are generated in a different aspect ratio they should be automatically cropped I think.
Given an input picture which is 500*500, it will be scaled down to 256*256 (or smaller depending on the user choise)
If a new setting using 16:9 is used, it will be scaled to 256*256 and then cropped from the center to 256*144.
Isn't this what you are requesting?
If not can give give me an example of the input data and the expected scaling.
I assume a setting like this will enforce ALL cached thumnbnails to be regenerated upon change?
Thanks, this was what I ment in my reply above. Might be wise to test in combination with the aspect modes.
