    Hey there – My portfolio thumbnails auto-crop an undesirable proportion of my main portfolio shot – so I get a bit of the main shot that looks crappy as a thumbnail when displayed in a portfolio thumbnail layout. I know this is generally hard to control but another theme I’ve worked with provides the exact size shot dimensions to suit so the thumbnail shows ALL of the shot (no cropping) and then scales perfectly when displayed as a larger image on the single portfolio page.

    So for Eunoia – is there a full size hard crop size that scales in proportion to suit thumbnails (so ALL the image shows)? I can then simply upload all my images at this perfectly scalable size.

    Thanks so much:)

    I’m guessing from the demo shots the scale would be proportional to around 690px x 450px – that seems to work OK?

    All image sizes are defined in functions.php:

    $avia_config['imgSize']['widget'] 			 	= array('width'=>36,  'height'=>36);							// small preview pics eg sidebar news
    $avia_config['imgSize']['slider_thumb'] = array('width'=>70, 'height'=>50 , 'copy'=>'greyscale'); // slideshow preview pics
    $avia_config['imgSize']['fullsize'] = array('width'=>990, 'height'=>990, 'crop'=>false); // big images for lightbox and portfolio single entries
    $avia_config['imgSize']['featured'] = array('width'=>1140, 'height'=>461 ); // images for fullsize pages and fullsize slider
    $avia_config['imgSize']['portfolio'] = array('width'=>495, 'height'=>400 , 'copy'=>'greyscale'); // images for portfolio entries (2,3 column)
    $avia_config['imgSize']['portfolio_small'] = array('width'=>284, 'height'=>211 , 'copy'=>'greyscale'); // images for portfolio 4 columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['logo'] = array('width'=>446, 'height'=>218 , 'copy'=>'greyscale'); // images for dynamic logo/partner element

    //dynamic columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_1'] = array('width'=>446, 'height'=>150); // images for 2/4 (aka 1/2) dynamic portfolio columns when using 3 columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_2'] = array('width'=>609, 'height'=>208); // images for 2/3 dynamic portfolio columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_3'] = array('width'=>688, 'height'=>150); // images for 3/4 dynamic portfolio columns

    Depending on the number of columns different thumbnail sizes are used. You can change the height value(s) btw – so if you’re unhappy with the current aspect ratio you can adjust the height value(s) to your needs. You can also deactivate the cropping feature by appending ‘crop’=>false to the code. A plugin like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/ adds a nice UI to the wordpress settings page and you don’t need to modify/edit functions.php. If you change the image sizes you need to regenerate the thumbnails with: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/
