I'm loving your great plugin. My website isn't active yet, but I'm working hard on the design and can't wait to get it launched soon.
With your plugin I've created one photo gallery to display on its own page. Whenever I add a new photo, it will appear as the first photo on the gallery page, and also as a single photo in the sidebar widget.
The hurdle I've encountered, though, is how to configure the width and height of the sidebar photo so that it doesn't get distorted. I know I want the photo to be the full-width of the sidebar (less some padding and a border). The sidebar widget lets me choose the standard display size, but how do I accomplish this without any distortion?
Some photos are going to be uploaded at different sizes, so wouldn't a standard width and height that I input via the widget distort some of my photos? Also, how can I treat this single sidebar photo as a thumbnail? For some of them I might want to select just part of the photo to be visible, like I'm able to do with the gallery. How would I accomplish this with the sidebar photo?
I hope what I'm asking makes sense. Thank you!
