Improved Image Cropping/Centering
No votes left
I swear I remember this being better in the app in the past. The built in image ratio is unnatural and the overkill on image zoom is annoying when ppl are already likely struggling to find photos they love to show that represent them well.

So feedback was needed because the Mutual team "doesn't know how to move forward on this." I'm no app developer, but something tells me it shouldn't be too difficult to change some image insert coding to allow for original sizes of images to be inserted regardless of ratio. Sure it's nice to fill your screen perfectly with someone's photo like Mutual has generally done, but I don't think autofilling some black space around the edges on images that don't fit your ideal/suggested ratio would hurt. Maybe you guys want to be a little more specific about what you'd like to clarify about this? It's not like I'm getting paid for this. XD
I agree, it is very hard to correctly center/position a photo so it shows up properly in the preview.
I would add to this that the app should not force a user to crop a photo In any particular way but allow the user the freedom to crop it the way they want. I have had a few times now where this app seemingly forces an “auto zoomed” in view of the picture I want to use. Unfortunately, some photo’s are no good if they are zoomed in at all. In these instances I would prefer to simple center the photo and if needed slightly zoom in.
All my pictures end up weirdly zoomed in or are cropped weirdly which is super frustrating. We also can’t add landscape type photos which negates a lot of the stuff I have available
