I've been working on a Wordpress theme (my first, actually) and the design includes a header image.

However, the header is extremely wide and thus is really small when adapted to a phone layout.

How would I allow for multiple crops of the same header image, so that I could have one wide crop for the desktop layout and one more squarish crop for the phone layout?

The ad_image_size will give you a smaller image that links to a larger one, but I don't think that's what your asking for. I believe your wanting a "responsive design". Here is a very simple demo and short tutorial that helped me out quite a bit: verekia.com/initializr/responsive-template – Jeremy Jared Feb 13 '12 at 1:45
@JeremyJared Yes, the design I'm building is indeed responsive. I'm asking how I can get a second crop setting. Whenever it asks for a crop it only asks once and (seemingly) randomly crops the second one. – digitxp Feb 15 '12 at 3:10

The add_image_size can do that for you.
