#22518 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Preserve aspect ratio in media window

Now there are 119 x 119 px square thumbnails which are generated from the centre of the picture. But it would be very helpful for choosing right pictures to see also dimensions of picture directly in media window. Please see attached screenshot, I tried to prepare small example...

For example when there are several similar pictures, dimensions are important for users. Or it could be possible to use some kind of hook to allow changing displayed thumbnails?

The stretched images are a bug, but the cropping is not; we're using cropped images to make the grid more scannable. If you want to see the image's full aspect ratio, the sidebar preview shows just that.

All of media is generally hookable, so it can be changed by overriding the attachment templates.

And stretched images bug is reported somewhere? Yes, I know that sidebar shows full aspect ration, but for selection from many similar images it would be helpful to see it also in main media window...

This feature should respect the "Crop thumbnail to exact dimensions" setting. I am in favor of reopening it.
