I’m sorry for the late response. First, I added the new version for our product. The problem was from your setting. I change in the themes/pico/nggallery/ gallery-dop-thumbnail-gallery.php , from “fit” to “full”:
thanks for the response. it’s confusing though – doesn’t fit mean that a portrait or landscape image will be scaled to fit into the container? that’s what I wanted, since portrait photos would then fit completely and not be cropped. now the portrait aspect ratio photos are cropped. the landscape photos were just being shown with way too much margin/padding, and that’s what I wanted to eliminate. please advise.
