Problem with small and large wallpapers on same monitor

DF appears to have no setting to deal with the common situation where you have wallpapers that are both larger and smaller than your screen size. If you don't want the small pictures to get distorted, you must select "Center" wallpaper. That's fine except it then crops your larger wallpapers.

If you select "Fit Best and maintain Aspect Ratio (No Clipping)" the larger wallpapers fit correctly, but now the smaller ones are enlarged to fill the screen and look horrible (see attached). Really, I'm not sure anyone wants their smaller images enlarged. You could just add "no resize if smaller" to this setting and all would be perfect.

..or am I missing a setting?

DisplayFusion 3.2 will have a new sizing mode which will scale large images down, or just centre smaller images. I haven't been able to think of a short enough name for it yet, so any suggestions are much appreciated.

I think "Fit Best, maintain Aspect Ratio (No Clipping) & Center if Smaller" will just fit...

Good call, I think it will just fit (in English). This won't be included in 3.1.5 (too late to add it now) but it will be in 3.1.6 or 3.2 for sure.

That's really good news. I've been waiting a long time for this one.

I never tend to use smaller images day-to-day, so I've never noticed this short-coming. Thanks for bringing it up.

I like some room around my pictures for icons and stuff. 8-)

Jon, as an alternate name: IrfanView uses the following: "Fit to screen (larger images only)" for centering smaller images and 'shrinking' larger images while maintaining aspect ratio... You could add Maintain aspect Ratio or Maintain A/R or keep A/R or something similar....
I am I.

Excellent - thanks for the alternate names.
