Maintaining aspect ratio on uploaded image lightbox thumbnails?

(Clay Heaton) #1

We’re having an issue where screenshots from iOS devices embed into a lightbox with appropriate thumbnail dimensions but screenshots from Android devices don’t. I’m wondering if there’s a way to get the Android screenshots to embed appropriately.

For example, here is a screenshot from an iPhone 6s:

and here is one from a Samsung Galaxy 8:

I’m guessing the metadata in the Android image is causing a problem? Is this a bug?

Not a bug, extremely tall images are cropped in the thumbnail because otherwise they look insane. To see the full image click or tap through.

Thanks, Jeff. Is there a setting that will maintain the long images? For our use case, we’d prefer to see the whole image.


Pushing the max image height setting to 3000 px or more should work (then “rebuild html” your post)

Thanks. I gave that a quick test and ended up with some weird off-aspect squished image. I’ll play around with it more tomorrow.
