What is the difference between image resize methods?

On the WPL backend -> settings -> Gallery:
There are 3 ways to resize images:
2. Crop Resize
3. Crop Resize (Center)
In this example, the original image is 620 x 358:
Assume our desired width and height is 300 x 300.
If you choose the first option (resize), your image will be resized according to the desired width and height without losing any part of the picture.
However, the original image is wide and the resized one is square. You will lose the original shape. See the image below:
If you choose the second option (crop resize), the dimension scale is different. It doesn't change the shape of image, but it crops a section of the image out from the right. The only original part of the image remaining is the top left. See image below:
If you select the third option (crop resize (center)) it is similar to the second option, except the center of image will be cropped instead of the top left.
See the image below:
Note: After changing the image resize method, please remove listings and users thumbnails using the maintenance section below the settings:
