I am a photographer with a Wordpress site so as you might imaging I need to show off my work in it's best light. I love the wordpress gallery because it creates great SEO due to the comments underneath the pictures but there's a problem with the thumbnails.
Firstly I am using the newer version of Wordpress which I am led to believe has less gallery options. I have lots of pictures in both portrait and landscape but the thumbnail is an exact square.
The problem is that in the portrait images, the tops and bottoms are cut off (usually peoples heads) and in the landscapes the sides are cut off.
Is there anything I can do to improve the gallery and show my images bigger without any cropping (e.g. more dynamic)?
Edit: Just to tell you what I've already tried. I have unchecked the fit to exact dimensions checkbox and ran a tool to regenerate the thumbnails but the pictures came back all over the place and they were slightly distorted. They didn't nicely fit together a bit like flickr for example.
