We have created an image service of our own taking care of image resizing.
You can chose to activate or deactivate image resizing. The image resizing setting also comes with the additional benefit of using face detection. The image service is not activated by default on article recommendations in the widget. This service should be activated upon publisher request.
See Widget Configuration for more information
Image resizing for Ads
Image resizing for all ads are on by default. Since our widget can look very different from site to site and the size and ratio of the image can be different on each site we can not guarantee what part of the picture that is displayed when the ad is shown. Normally adding a picture that has similar aspect ratios like most of our widgets would be best and to make sure that the best part of the image is in the center of the picture. Strossle do not officially support having text in the images so please make sure that there is no text in the images since the text will be cropped and it will look different on different sites.
