Comment (by jb510):

 I've got to +1 needing to handle flexible cropping ratios of the

 Nick's example is a great one as to why a lot of screenshots are of odd
 aspect ratios.  Those _do_ provide a better user experience by being
 focused on the one thing they're showing.

 We've at least got to discuss what happens to those types of images in a
 slider type arrangement.

 I don't like it, but if those images get vertically resized to fit int a
 slider, then I think they need to open into a lightbox at full res that is
 zoomable...  I said I didn't like it, but it's better than downsizing them
 without any way to see full res.

 The alternative I guess would be making the slider the height of the max
 image height, which again will be a problem on mobile when it might easily
 exceed the touchscreen height.
