Hi Amanda -- There isn't really an answer to this question since currently images are cropped to fill the entire sidecar media panel. The area of the image that's shown depends on your screen resolution and browser window size.
If you are trying to create a story that will be viewed/presented on a specific monitor/screen you could take a screenshot of the media panel and determine its dimensions for that situation and then use those specs for your images.
Let me know if I misunderstood your question or if you need more info!
Hi Owen Evans,
Thanks so much, that makes sense. One thing I noticed while testing on the same device (which led me to this question); when resizing an image to a smaller size, in theory the photo should be less cropped but instead the picture becomes pixelated/grainy (and spans approximately the same size as the original). Is this expected?
Do you know if the team plans to implement the option (similar to cascade) where you can choose to not crop the image?
Yep, that's expected. It's because a smaller image has to be enlarged even more to fill the frame, so with fewer pixels the photo is going to look more blurry.
Also yep, we are working on a "do not crop" option that should be available soon. 🙂
Just circling back to this thread: In the August update, with a sidecar, you now have the ability to upload an image and keep it set to "fit" so you can see it in its entirety.
