Comment (by Otto42):

 This is correct, however I'm almost considering this to be a wontfix,
 given that the name of them is "screenshot". Unless you have an extremely
 vertical screen, then images with excessive height don't really seem to be
 desirable. The goal is not to showcase every possible admin option and
 setting as some plugins do, but to show what the plugin does and give
 examples of it.

 In particular, screenshots of admin settings are less than helpful. We
 can't read them, we can't search on them, the only thing anybody can do is
 look at them and see a screen full of checkboxes.

 Screenshots should fall into the normal screen-size ranges. 4:3 to 16:10
 or similar. Wide, not tall.
