I know this has been discussed before but is there an easy way to change the size of the base product image. I would like to set a maximum width of 400 pixels but have the height be different for every product. In its current specifications the base product is square and only shows part of the image( if bigger than 300 by 300).
Any where in the templates that you see resize([width value],[height value]), you should be able to omit the height value. You would end up with images that are all 400px wide and the height would adjust accordingly.
