Distorting images.

I have just discovered that the latest version of the image widget dos not retain the proportions of a uploaded picture! If you place a column devider asd set it to 2/3 and 1/3 width, then place a suitably scaled image in the narrow portion, then set it to be centered. Looks great.

Now resize the column, rather than the image retaining it's size/proportion and the surrounding borders growing to pad the column. The picture grosw latterally and becomes distorted. Is this what was intended? I sincerely hope not.

Behaviour observed on the following platforms.

Win Vista Ultimate 32bit, FF 3.6.12, IE8.0.6001.18975
Win Vista Basic 32 bit, FF 3.6.12, IE8.0.6001.18975

Clearing cashe has no effect on this behaviour.

Hello Rob

I'm sorry to hear about this issue. I have just tried it on my site and was unable to replicate. When I dragged the middle axis over closer to one side, the image remained the same size.

Would you mind emailing support@yola.com. I'd like to see if I can replicate this in your Sitebuilder.

The image resizes correctly if you shrinh the space containing it, but not if you extend it. I did supply the URL in the original post. This is still happening so it was not a transient issue, I will emai support at yola later as requested.

OK I have just replecated what I did to get this error to be clear about the steps when raising a support email. I produced the same widget structure, on the same page immediately below the one that distorts. It works fine (even with the same image). The problem widget set still distorted, so I deleted it and recreated it. Now I cant reproduce the error!

Sorry to have been a pain, but I was not dreaming it honestly.

Hello Rob - thank you for letting us know. Sounds like a temporary glitch and I do believe you weren't dreaming :)
