The product image resizing works in the following way:

When a product image is added to the system, 3 modifications of this image are created: Thumbnail Image, Full Size Image and Enlarged Image. The dimensions of these images are set following the rules:

Thumbnail Image
The placeholder's width is 145 pixels. If the width of the original image is:
a) smaller than 145 px, then the image is stretched to fit the placeholder's width;
b) 145 px, the height stays unchanged; 
c) bigger than 145 px, the width is reduced to 145 px and the height is then set according to the original image dimensions.

Full Size Image 
The placeholder's width is 250 pixels. If the width of the original image is:
a) smaller than 250px, then the image dimensions stay unchanged;
b) 250 px, the height stays unchanged; 
c) bigger than 250 px, the width is reduced to 250 px and the height is then set according to the original image dimensions.

Enlarged Image 
The placeholder's width is 500 pixels. If the width of the original image is:
a) smaller than 500px, then the image dimensions stay unchanged;
b) 500 px, the height stays unchanged; 
c) bigger than 500 px, the width is reduced to 500 px and the height is then set according to the original image dimensions.

To achieve thumbnail product images the same width and height, we recommend all product images are cut to the same size before uploading. Preferred image dimensions are 500 px x 500 px, if you are using the Enlarge Image functionality, and 250 px x 250 px otherwise.
