 Wordpress seems to mess up relative image scaling with add_image_size.

 The code of my child theme reads:
 add_image_size( 'name', 9999, 525, false );

 With the '9999' based on

 Upon entering a landscape image w2500 x h1250 the image is resized to w525
 x h263, taking the longest side of the image as height, instead of the
 actual height (in this case 1250px). Portrait images are (of course)
 resized according to their height (which is their longest side).
