Select image dialog and Jabber avatars

I'm just wondering whether I'm the only one or not to dislike the idea of selecting only square pictures for contacts photos in Kopete or in KAdressbook. In Kopete, I would like to have the option "Resize image to n x n" even if the original photo isn't square. In KAddressbook, I just don't see why there is this constraint on the photo size. But maybe I'm missing something ? What is your opinion on this question ;-) ?

But it's cool that Kopete trunk supports Jabber avatars now !!! Another thing which will allow some migrations from MSN to Jabber I hope.

  • Jabber avatars mmmm I would love to see them in KDE 3.5 but its too late :(

  • In fact, Jabber avatars are not in trunk yet but in special Kopete 0.12 dev branch. Not sure if this branch will be released one day, but anyway this will be in trunk(KDE 4.0).

    As for square pictures in Kopete, well that's because most of the protocols wants a square picture.

  • Yes, but some time I would like to have an option stretch picture and to not have to crop it :-)

  • I totally agree in the square pictures, so you're not the only one ;)

  • The address book images are for example shown in KMail scaled to a square image.
