Images (crop ratios) for People Profiles
Images are displayed in different aspect ratios depending on the theme selected for your site and the context in which they are displayed.
Images need to be at least 220 pixels x 220 pixels to display correctly. They should all have extra room on all four sides of the person's face , about 10% is ideal to allow for the multiple ways in which images are displayed.
