Request: No more cropped thumbnails in Juicebox and Showkase.
I understand the requirement for square thumbnails from a programming standpoint, and I appreciate the available workaround for custom horizontal and vertical formats. However neither solution suits the admixture of horizontal, square, and vertical compositions which I offer to the public.
My pain point aesthetically with this web solution is that images are shoe-horned into a square crop. I submit that this is a severe misrepresentation of our photographs.
I will live with this shortcoming, but not siliently.
Please put some engineering muscle into a solution that maintains our photographs' proportionality. Centring with irregular padding (hence dead space) would be far superior to the current implementation of blindly forcing our rectangular images into square holes.
Thanks for listening, and for so many wonderful incremental improvements.
