MBPhoto: Keep aspect ratio of photos

Recommended Posts

heula

In MBPhoto when I am on a photo that photo is shown as backdrop also. That's nice but it would be a lot better when the photos are kept in aspecct ratio.

For example the portrait photo's are stretched out over the screen.

 

Same thing for the photo thumbs.

 

I really would like MBphoto to show photos as backdrops and photothumbs in the original format.

 

An example of a stretched portrait photo.

This is a function of the theme, not the plug-in.  Most themes are expecting 16x9 backdrops and fill the screen with them.  There isn't a lot we'll be able to do here.

Too bad but perhaps themes can make exceptions for items that are catagorized as "collection type: Photos"

Maybe these collection types can be set to keep aspect ratio?

The issue is that most themes were developed for MB2 and are not being maintained/modified.  Any that are new could potentially do this but it would be a function of the theme.

Currently, backdrops default to stretching/possibly distorting to fill the whole screen.  I'll look into adding a folder view settings option to preserve backdrop original aspect ratio so you can set it by folder/collection.

Can we expect this setting any time soon?

Thanks
