Suggest dimensions for Profile & User Expansion Backgrounds


(Michael Downey) #1

When a user goes to change their Profile Background and/or User Expansion Background, nothing suggests the dimensions or aspect ratio that should be used here. (Does it get distorted or cropped?)

What about adding suggested (enforced?) dimensions in to the UI?

EDIT: This would also be good for Category Logo Image & Category Background Image as well, IMHO.

This would be good to add with your recent changes @eviltrout. As long as we can provide the help text immediately prior to the upload without cluttering the preferences.

I’ve added some help text below the images now. It’s hard to specify dimensions as the vertical height can change, but I indicated it’s centered and the default width.
