Introduce a new "smart" crop mode for images
|Reported by:||mudslidedesign||Owned by:|
There are scenarios when neither the soft-crop nor hard-crop modes are suitable when resizing and cropping images.
We'd like to see a third crop mode introduced which selectively crops an image only if the aspect ratio of the full-size image is close to the aspect ratio of the desired image dimensions.
This is particularly useful when resizing images for display in a slide-show where you want to avoid seeing thin gaps either side of the image caused by a slight difference in the aspect ratios. This can be avoided with cropping, but in this scenario you typically want to avoid excessive cropping from occurring.
A patch file and a document explaining the feature in greater depth (showing examples) will follow shortly.
