The "custom thumbnail cropping" feature is great because we want some pictures to be cropped centered, some to the lower left, some to the upper right, etc. So, we use (slightly modified versions of) printAlbumThumbImage and printImageThumb to display all thumbs.
Now, like zpMasonry, we want to display a random slideshow with regular size (non-thumb) images (say 528x528). However, unlike zpMasonry, we want the images cropped the same as the thumbs.
If we use the same process as printAlbumThumbImage and printImageThumb (use an <img src=...> tag with larger width= and height= parameters), the image is blurry (low res pic blown up).
And if we use the printCustomAlbumThumbImage or printCustomSizedImage or printRandomImages method, the images are cropped and clear, but do not honor the "custom thumbnail cropping" (all cropped to center or top left).
Is there a way to apply the custom crop to a regular size picture and still get a sharp image?
