 This is a quick proposal for a more fine-tuned way of creating thumbnails.
 It would need some more work to make it work out of the box, but I wanted
 to get some feedback before spending more time on this.

 As far as I understoord the wp_create_thumbnail function (located wp-admin
 /admin-functions.php) is looking at $maxside in determining the maximum
 side. Be it the width or the height. My proposal allows you to select the
 maximum side explicitly which eventually could help theme authors in
 maintaining a more consistent look due to the images having either the
 same width or height.

 Besides this I also changed the error handling in such a way that any
 error created will result in a returned error message (type array). The
 error messages also have been made a bit more descriptive. E.g. jpg
 thumbnail could not be created, instead of:

 ''Filetype not supported. Thumbnail not created.''

 I changed it to:

 ''Filetype: jpg not supported. Thumbnail not created.''

 Looking forward to hear some feedback!
