Are there any rules or guidelines you use when coming up with your image sizes and aspect ratios?

I’ve noticed the current TF trend is for very wide images, something along the lines of 940×300px for the giant scrollers and 600×275px for blog images.

With standard camera and video aspect ratios are 4:3 and 16:9, if a user uploads an image and is replying on auto cropping the results are going to be less than desirable.

Have any of you as developers had any complaints about this?

I’m trying to work out the image sizes for a theme I’m working on and just wanted to know if I am missing something or if most of you are using a ‘what looks best’ approach.

Input from buyers would be helpful as well. Are buyers cool with having to use photoshop to pre-crop their images?

There’s no need to crop an image. If you have < img src="myimage.jpg / >, you can just write img { width: 640px; } and the height would adjust itself without having to write complicated javascript to calculate the height.
