 Replying to [ticket:2273 hlashbrooke]:
 > 1. The number of screenshots should be limited. I believe this has been
 discussed before, but a limit of 4-6 images would be best I think. Once
 that is done, then the thumbnail carousel images should be resized to fit
 exactly the maximum number of screenshots under the displayed image.

 I think your plugin shows the usecase as to why there shouldn't be a
 limit. Screenshots are supposed to provide users context to a plugin, like
 being able to see what options do and don't exist, and how things will be
 output. Limiting screenshots seems counterintuitive to a goal of making
 the directory better for the end users, who by definition are on the
 directory trying to find a plugin that meets their needs. If the number of
 screenshots is limited, on certain plugins, particularly ones with more
 settings than others (WooCommerce, EDD, any caching plugin, etc), it will
 be significantly harder for users to gauge if they've found the right
 plugin without needing to install it to see.
