A square something is usually more practical than something round. Indeed, a fat, round watermelon can take up a lot of room in a refrigerator, and the usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves. Square shape also means that it’s more stable than anything else; it can be adapted to small places. The tendency to grow square watermelons, for instance, was caused by the lack of space, so to leave the inner essence untouched, but change the outer appearance was the dilemma to solve. A similar dilemma refers to digital images, when the user would like to change the image proportions to square without distorting the image itself. The necessity to change the image proportions usually comes out of the necessity to fit the photos into specific photo frames. A portrait photo, for instance, will look more advantageous in a square frame rather than a rectangular one. When changing image proportions ImageConverter Plus allows doing so by means of the “canvas” operation.
