@jordashtalon – dynamically resizing images on the server would consume so much CPU time you’d probably get kicked off a shared host within hours. Even at moderate traffic, it would easily saturate a dedicated server.
We’ve included template tags that let you:
a) determine what cached sizes of an image exist
b) the x and y pixel size of those cached versions
That’s so you can write a PHP routine in your template that selects the closest-sized image and conditionally includes w= and h= markup elements to resize the image within a template to the smallest bounding X or Y dimension.
