What is the question here? What kind of changed do you need?

If you upload a small image, then request a larger file format (as specified using add_image_size) Wordpress will return a larger image, but not cropped to the ratio specified in add_image_size. As I understand it wordpress does not currently support 'zoom and crop'. This would be a useful function as the current set up can break layouts by returning incorrectly shaped images.

Ah that way. WordPress doesn't do upscaling. In this case I'm not sure what the right solution would be.

At the risk of stating the obvious, a solution would be to enable Wordpress to upscale, or at least add it as a configurable option. Whilst I understand all the arguments about loss of quality, this would be a valuable addition to the image handling set up (and not a hard one to achieve).

  • Summary changed from Introduce zoom-crop in Media image handling to Upsize an image for crops larger than itself

I support the idea of upscaling images so that an attachment never has a "non-existing" image size. This can break functionality in unexpected ways, and your typical user will not understand why a header image doesn't show up even though they uploaded one in their theme options page.
