"Hi Vincent, You can apply just a width or just a height, and the image will be resized to maintain its aspect ratio. If you want to crop, you can apply a height and width and specify the crop parameter:  &crop=1:1 Thanks, Phil"

How to properly resize thumbnails using the php api

 I noticed that you can append the width and height you wan the image to be to the src urlhttp://very/long/foo?width=150&height150 what if i wanted to show the images the same way the ning site does, where portrait images aren't squashed to say 150 * 150 but rather are resized as on the ning site. Or maybe do i need to apply some aspect ratio maths to the actual width and height of the image.See More
