Maintain aspect ratio of cover art

Post by blabibo » Wed Jun 12, 2019 3:59 pm

Atm EZCD only offers to save cover arts as square images. Problem is digipaks, jcards etc are not square. Cropping the image is not always an option if you want to preserve everything that's on the image. And resizing to a square image will distort it.

So I'm proposing a checkbox, under "Resize embedded cover art", something like "Constrain proportions" (like on Photoshop) or "Maintain aspect ratio" (easier to understand).

So for example, if your cover image is 1601x1401, you'll have the choice to have it resized to a 500x500 image or to a 500x438 image that respects the original ratio.

I can add an option to keep the aspect ratio on resize. I can also add custom resolution, so you can use 512 pixels if you prefer it.

As the cover art, is normally displayed in a small window, as in portable devices I use 450...so, making the 'resize mode' more flexible would be great.
