...or fit the image horizontally, so that wide aspect images display in their entirety. Doing either of these two things might be one of the lowest hanging fruits for improving the look of all Narrative content listings. Right now, most of the images in the content listings are unappealing because the brain can't easily grasp what is being looked at.

Horizontal fit is ideal for readers/viewers, though for creators, being able to crop an image so that the preview doesn't give the whole thing away would be more helpful. (And it would allow creators to choose the horizontal fit option as well.)

Thanks for bringing this up Malkazoid , I was just griping about this to myself. I even altered my picture this morning to make it a perfect square and the image preview is still gibberish. Sucks because I will be relying on the images to get readers to begin with.

Guidelines would be helpful at least till a cropping tool is in effect.

Yes, we are working on a revamped UI for the Featured content stream that should make things much better in terms of the title images. Should be rolled out within the next month.
