 No, honestly, I think "detailed UIs" are the exception, not the norm. Most
 plugin developers who take time on their screenshots make sure to focus on
 a certain area of the screen, and even enlarge that area for best

 And as @samuelsidler has mentioned, it's likely that plugin authors will
 have to adapt their screenshots a bit no matter what change is made.

 Lastly, with a justified Grid mosaic, some images are full-width
 automatically. I think the mosaic gets the best of all worlds. Wide enough
 images when it matters, symmetry in design, on-page ability to see the
 full details if necessary.
