[resolved] arras tapestry quick preview change dimensions to percentage (4 posts)

    im in the middle of converting a site into arras/wp. and have a problem with how it scales the tapestry quick preview images.
    yes, i know about the theme options and changing dimensions there, but would like for them to scale vertically-instead of horizontally to fit the dimensions under the theme options. Some of the images i've been supplied with (+that's all they have) aren't large enough horizontally (vert photos), so they end up looking all squished/warped to accommodate the horizontal..
    Any clues or work a rounds that anyone knows? would be MOST appreciated. Thanks

    well, if anyone cares/runs across the same problem, i figured out my solution.
    to accommodate both horz + vert images, without them getting distorted.
    (the minimums are what i defined under the admin/arras options)

    in my child stylesheet:
    .posts-quick .entry-thumbnails
    {min-width: 220px; min-height: 140px;}

    #archive-posts .posts-quick .entry-thumbnails img
    {height: auto; width: auto; overflow: hidden;}

    .posts-quick .entry-thumbnails img
    {height: auto; width: auto;}

    I have tried out Arras and I think you must set different sizes in the option page and check the Regenerate box before saving.
    Arras uses timthumb and it resizes images as is set.

    Nothing to do in the stylesheet at the fist place. If you have different image sizes, then you should resize all images manually as you wish.

    yes, like i said - i know about the options page and settings.the issue was with how it distorted diff. sizes/resolutions when it used the setting under the options. it had everything to do with the style sheet- unless there was something i could change in timthumb/ with a child theme.?

    To manually resize images to accommodate both the full "featured image" and the "thumbnail" would have been a nightmare, and didn't work across the board. you cant (as far as i know) select a different image for the "featured image" and the thumbnail, ie: tapestry quick preview.

    distortion fixed- yes thru CSS.
