Suggestion - Have an image rescaling option with padding


#1

AFAIU, the resize option for the pre-processing of images does rescale the x and y dimension independently. This implies that if the images don’t the same heights to width ratio some will be distorted. Would it be possible to add the option of “global” rescaling ? That means only rescale according to the biggest mesure (height or width) and pad with zeros for the missing pixel in the image.


#2

Yes. It is possible and seems like it will be useful as images are generally not of the same dimensions/ratio.

We will file a enhancement request.


#3

Great. Yes I agree in general images in a dataset don’t have a constant height/width ratio.
