Oh I see, so if it is portrait, it sets the height, otherwise the width.

So how to have a set of images all of standard size by width ?
maybe committing on github to modifiy the code?

also, is this an api of use which won't be dismissed for the roadmap of wikipedia "api 2.0" ?
I read it is still experimental on the extension panel and last commit 2012 - or should i consider it stable?

Ok, after investigating it, it turns out that the code is checking that
none of them is bigger than pithumbsize. As Albert Einstein photo has a
portrait orientation, it apparently affects only the height. You can see
the opposite effect in an article with a landscape image, eg.
