So in general if in the future we get more choice in how to present our images I would love if it was granular enough to still not loose the presentation options we have now!
One more thing about the "padding because image takes too much space". On certain screens posts are really really tiny so if anything like that was ever a thing it would be cool if it was more dynamic… I don't know about building websites but I feel like "max width" wouldn't work either, at least in pixels, because screens have different densities? But I know there must be a way for working with different density screens, I just don't know css so I'm out of my depth here
I must say I accidentally skipped over "set image height equal to post width" part and only remembered the percentage bit while replying! I can see how in your use case this would be helpful (I imagine (9:16 photos from phone for example?)
I also remembered one specific image layout option that would be very useful! I would love it if there was an option for images to not get cropped and instead have height of the row and be able to occupy unequal portions of the row! (would that be call "fit"?) I remembered that when I was looking at two images and thinking about maybe gluing them together at the edge into single wide one and I realized how useful it would be if I could upload two images and have them display like that on their own
sounding off in agreement here! i am enthusiastically looking forward to different image arrangements. most of my art ends up longer horizontally than it is vertical, and trying to post more than one in a single post can make 'em look pretty gnarly atm haha
an absolute must-have!! been similarly holding off on uploading arts and screenshots and things just because i can't control how they'll be shown off
