I would like to request the following feature.
Feature Request for SlideShowPRO for Flash / Director: A selective or "smart" crop to fit all option for photographers with full screen, liquid layout, allowing for a choice between 'crop to fit' or proportional depending on whether an image is portrait or landscape.
Scenario: In SSP for Flash / Director's current state, both "crop to fit" and "crop to fit all" do not distinguish between portrait and landscaped photographs. If the portrait image is loaded from Director, the crop to fit options will ruin your composition by cropping. I know that users of Director can pick a focal point or zone, but I'd like something more as an option.
What if SSP / Director will detect image size such that for us who like to use either crop-to-fit options, the portrait images will be loaded as "proportional" while landscaped images will be cropped to fit?
I have found that this is a sticking point for clients, especially ones that have a full screen layout but need only the portrait images to scale down as to not lose too much of the image. I have stuck by SSP and convinced the clients to stick by it until it is added as a feature. I would hate to have to start promoting another CMS as I love SSP.

I second this! I'm just finishing a project using SSP having sold it to the client as the answer to his prayers and disappointed to find that I'm now totally stuffed!
