Cropped thumbnails (4 posts)

    Hello dear WordPress community!

    Quote from the image editor:

    The thumbnail image can be cropped differently. For example it can be square or contain only a portion of the original image to showcase it better. Here you can select whether to apply changes to all image sizes or make the thumbnail different.

    This is exactly what I'd like to do, except for the fact that I don't want WordPress to scale it down to 150x150px. I'd just like to display a cropped (and therefore smaller) version of the picture which is then linked to the original. I also tried to set the thumbnails' width and height to 0 in the preferences. Then, however, I don't even get the chance to assign a cropped version as thumbnail in the editor.

    Could you tell me how to achieve that? Or isn't it possible at all?
    Thanks in advance!

    there's some advice here on resizing...not sure if it steers you in the right direction....

    Thanks for the link but I suppose you got me wrong. I don't want to have post thumbnails on my site. I would like to have normal cropped thumbnails (sometimes none, sometimes one or even more) inserted somewhere in my post.
