Lack of Interest Add options for how thumbnail is generated

    Currently, it looks like the thumbnails are generated by fitting the width of the image and cropping the rest. The user should also be able to generate a thumbnail by fitting the height and fitting both the width and height.

    When you click Change Thumbnail, there should be a drop down menu with the following options in the Delete current thumbnail Box (since that's what regenerates it):
    • Fit width
    • Fit height
    • Fit width and height
    It would also be nice to choose how it is generated when you first upload the image. Maybe it would be a setting for all of the currently uploaded images instead of individually (to save space).

    Here's an example of an image that looks bad with the current thumbnails.

    Image: mario_06.png

    Thumbnail: 25726-93a884398d73946e7f58a3d266a58922.jpg.png

    Edit: It would also be useful to set the default behavior.

    Edit 2: I'm thinking the setting should be saved with the media so that it will still work properly if the thumbnail gets regenerated later.
