This plugin hits the spot.. does what it says on the can.
Totally hits the spot. I don't know why I didn't think of searching for something like this before. I guess because I'm a big girl and I know how to use Photoshop? OK whatever.
As much as I love WordPress, it has to make guesses about how to crop things, and it has to have a single across the board rule. That doesn't cut it, especially if you have some unusual, special thumbnail sizes in your theme.
No more mangled images. No more opening Photoshop just for a quick fix.
I heart this plugin - thanks :)
