    I was a bit confused over the image height ratio but when I tried 140 the book cover graphic fitted close to perfectly. It's a bit trial and error to work out the scaling but I guess if you did some calculations from the original you would get it right first time.

    I tried the Image Widget plugin and it was a lot more fiddly..in fact I couldn't get the image to scale correctly. Another option is included in the WP Jetpack, but haven't checked that for scaling yet.

    Responsive Image Widget is highly recommended from what I can see so far.

    Thanks a lot for the review, I'm really glad you found it useful! If you run into any trouble with it, don't hesitate to post in the support area, I try to check fairly regularly for new support requests.

    Actually, this widget isn't probably suited best for things where you need to include the entire image (like a book cover), but rather where you want to quickly and easily cut an image to a specific ratio inside of WordPress. Basically, the ratio is given more preference than the entirety of the image. An example usage might be wanting to add a series of photos of the same height and width to a sidebar area, but not wanting to go and edit each photo in an image editor to those dimensions.

    I may release one that displays an entire image and resizes horizontally as the screen shrinks -- that might be better for what you're trying to do with a book cover. With this one, it's true that you need to match the ratio to the ratio of your original image in order to show the whole thing. Again, thanks so much for the review and I'm glad you found it useful!

    I have just been rebuilding a small site which was in Vodahost's Bluevoda into WordPress and here is how I used your plugin.

    You can see what I did with it here

    As noted, I was pleased with how it worked out...even if this isn't what it wasn't ideally designed for.

    Cheers!
