No. But I'll add that to the feature list as well. No biggie at all.

The heavy use of photos in a couple of sites we have done, shows that most 
natural resize function we found was the "fit with-in rectangle", which is 
what is actually exposed in the URL space (not my call). That is a "site 
issue" and nothing to do with the Reader itself, which operates through 

The "fit with-in" is IMHO the best of "keep-aspect" and "resize-to", since 
when dealing with loads of photos, you have no clue of the original sizes, 
but you know how much screen real-estate you have available. And the concept 
is easy to explain to 'non-geeks'.

Note; Since the reader has not been taken out of Bugzilla, I have not updated 
it with these additional features, and only sitting on my local system.
