Is is possible to disable this, now you see half of the image.

Hi Dennis!

Cropping cannot be disabled, because it maintains the aspect ratio to make the list of participants look normal in the grid. Otherwise you will have ugly layout. But, I do not understand what do you mean by half of the image? May be aspect ratio is wrong in Options?

Re: Photo upload crop

Hi Dmitry

Ok, thanks. I know whaty you mean by ugly, some quare and some rectangle.
I have now changed the text :
The cropped photo will be ONLY used in the thumbnail version of the picture in the list of competition participants.<br />You can change the crop area by stretching the frame.

Hoop it is more clear for the person that pointed this issue to me :-)

Half of the image, i mean the cropping is ofcourse getting only a part of the image, but it is only used as thumbnail.

So, with the extra text explanation it is ok for me.

Best regards
Dennis

Makes sense! Will add this text by default to make it more clear for all ;) Something like this:
The cropped photo will be only used as a small photo in the list of competition participants. It does not affect the full size photo.<br />You can change the crop area by stretching the frame.

Well it depends on photos being uploaded. If your ratio in options for example is 4:3 and uploaded photo is about the same then you can stretch the frame almost to full photo.

BTW have you a showcase site to see our component in action?
