Picture the scene: you have a few thousand users with avatars on your site. You want to change from a boring 4x3 photo to a cool and hip circular crop. You know it’ll look great for new users, but we don’t want to leave the existing ones behind.
Let’s imagine our current approach to user avatars is to accept any size and shape image. Because we’re sensible, we retain the originally uploaded image and generate a thumbnail to be used on the site which maintains the proportions but constrains the longest side to 100 pixels.
