images sizes and hard vs soft crop
Hi – I am new to this forum as well as to jumpstart. My problem is two-fold, and concerns non-uniformly sized images. Many (but not all) of our pictures have a ratio of about 3:2 (width:height.). These pictures have an empty space below them in the mini-post-lists, which uses the ‘square-smaller’ crop size (70 x 70). How can I get square crops from these non-square images?
A related issue is the variable heights of images in sliders and post grids. I tried using the TB Image sizes plugin, using 3:2 aspect ratios and hard cropping but it seemed to have no effect. The only thing that did work was to edit some pictures that did not have the 3:2 aspect ratio so that they did, and then to regenerate the thumbnails. Is that the only solution?? Our previous theme used the timthumb image resizer and worked fine with these images.
thanks for any help!
