I have a website that uses 2 image sizes:
They have different sizes (obviously), but their aspect (i.e. width/height) ratios are different. My question9s) is this:
I would like to know what the standard way of doing things on a website is. When a user is uploading a photograph, I ask for a large photograph (which will be used for the profile page), I then "redimension" that image to a thumbnail
Q1. Is this the "normal" way of doing things? (I dont want to make things difficult/different for my users)
If that is the normal way of doing things, then I assume that it would be important to preserve the "aspect ratio" between the profile photo and the thumbnail photo, otherwise the thumbnail photos will be distorted.
Q2 Is this assumption (i.e. maintaining aspect ratio between thumbnail and profile image) correct?
