Image upload custom size uses short side
I just uploaded an image to a WP and chose custom size. It is a landscape picture of 3264x2448 pixels. I entered 2048x2048 to see how the resizing works. I expected to get a scale-keeping resized image fitting into 2048x2048. That means the long side should be 2048 and the short side should be 1536. I hoped it wouldn't ignore the scale and resize to 2048x2048.
Well, it didn't neither of the two.
Instead it scaled the picture to 2731x2048, using the short side.
This is unusual behavior, a user wouldn't expect. I have multiple suggestions to change this behavior:
1. Calculate the scale and update one side while typing the size of the other
2. Do a scaled-resize to fit the long side to the given size (expeted behavior)
3. Use another modal-view instead of AlertView, so you have more space to add options, like "scale to fit long side", "scale to fit short side", "ignore scale and resize"
Thank you for your work on this app,
keep going and improving it, it have been improving it a lot!
