I have a client who sells CDs and DVDS. We have them grouped by product category.
The question I have is, is it possible to have different images sizes for each category on the main shop pages when scrolling through?
CDs are square and DVD graphics are generally taller. Currently when DVD images are uploaded they're cropped. To the average consumer, they don't look like DVDs, let alone loss parts of the image off the top and bottom due to the auto crop.
One option I have is to take my DVD images and scale them proportionally to fit within the square size used for CDs through photoshop. This makes them the same height as CDs but added white space on the sides of the graphic. Also this adds an extra step for them and they're not quite versed in Photoshop or any image editing program for that matter.
So if possible, a functions or hook edit would probably be the best way to go about it if possible.
