[resolved] Hard Crop Thumbnails (4 posts)

    Currently the size set for the image thumbnails simply resizes the uploaded image to the width as set. I'm looking to be able to hard-crop the thumbnails so every image is the same size and proportion.

    Is this possible?

    Or even utilize the image sizes already in place in my wordpress installation.

    Hi purrdesign,

    Can you tell me what your image settings are in BD? A screenshot of the Images tab may help (use http://imageshack.us if you need to)

    We do resizing of images--when you say hard crop, you mean take a 400x400 images and just grab the middle 100x100 pixels? (or something similar)

    Current settings:

    I do not see any 'height' option for the thumbnail. As it is now, any image I upload is resized to 280 pixels wide, but the height stays relative to the original image proportion. I want to hard crop these images to 280x280 squares, despite the proportions of the original image.

    Hi purrdesign,

    OK, I think it get it now.

    We probably need to expand our image processing options to allow for the following:
    - Specific thumbnail height
    - Hard crop vs. resize (we resize, as you've already noted--mostly because people generally wanted to see their image in the same proportions, based on past feedback).

    This is something we can look into adding for the future.
