I'm preparing a website that will be very heavy on photographs. My first thought was to go with PF4.6 because I already own a license. But after a short time I realized that PF4.6 doesn't handle thumbnails very well. All thumbnails are squares and are cropped in the very middle of the photo. For photos of anything other than people this isn't so bad. But for portraits, the cropping removes the subjects heads!! I can't find an app or theme that will change this. Not good for a site that depends on photos.
In the legacy version of PF(3.9), you can choose whether the photos are all cropped square of if they are simply reduced from the original proportionately... this is perfect! But PF3.9 is old code and no longer supported.
So, I said all that to ask this question: Does SE crop thumbs into squares or does the admin have the option to have the thumbs reduced proportionately from the original photo (like PF3.9)?
