Can't get perfect thumbnail sizes with image editor
|Reported by:||smerriman||Owned by:|
In the media settings, I have the thumbnail set to a fixed size (218x145), and set to crop to these exact dimensions.
Sometimes the automatic thumbnail crops off people's heads, etc, so I use the Image Editor to manually adjust the thumbnail. I select a rectangle, set the aspect ratio to 218x145, click crop, apply to thumbnail only, and save.
However, sometimes that results in an image slightly off in dimensions - for example, 215x145.
I expect this is a rounding error. However, it happens even if I select an area much bigger than this when cropping in the Image Editor - eg 300x200. After I click crop and see the 300x200 image, I would expect the thumbnail to be automatically be created at 218x145 like it does normally based on this adjusted image - however, it appears the checkbox for using exact dimensions doesn't apply here. (In fact, if I select, say 300x300, it will make my thumbnail 145x145).
This feels like a bug to me, and makes it very hard to generate thumbnails at the size I want.
