Image aspect ratio

by Jim Mayor, Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 13:47 (1487 days ago)

Is there a listing of actual image aspect ratios for each calendar format? I tend to use the Duplex Month so I can a nice area for a picture. When I am editing my pictures for use, I use another program which allows for cropping with a fixed aspect ration, it would be nice to be able to crop my images to the “optimum” aspect ration.

The original aspect ratio is maintained for the default size of any picture which is sized the to maximum to fit space without distorting aspect ratio.

So picture won't be distorted In default size.

If you wish to resize a picture without distorting aspect, hold down shift while doing the resizing.

As usual I didn't explain properly.

I would like to be able to utilize the entire available image space on a calendar. If I have an image that is not of the same aspect ratio then I will have to crop the image. This seems like it would be a trial and error effort if I still want to use the entire space. For example: If I have a square image and the total available space has a 1.50 aspect ratio, in my image editing program I can set the crop tool to a 1.50 aspect ratio and peruse the image to find the best crop. One relatively easy step.

There are many factors that determine the available space for an image in any given calendar style (page size and aspect, orientation, font sizes used, sizeable " calendar" block). If this were to be implemented it would need to be calculated in real time and displayed to user, say as a tooltip.
