Image Gallery Thumbnails Cropping vs Resize

Forgive me if this has been discussed already as I could not find it.

I would like to know how to stop the image gallery thumbnails from being cropped. Instead, If I set a width of 150px, I would like to maintain aspect ratio and have the thumbnails created to that width, and whatever height is necessary.

Thanks :)

I plan to add that in soon. I've had a lot of requests for it.

Thank you uncle cheese. :)

I've brought in thumbnails before manually, so that a page has it's own thumbnail.
In the .php file it looks something like this $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", new ImageField('Photo'));
And in the .ss file, something like this $Photo.SetWidth(150)

I'm just not sure how to edit your magnificent code without breaking it.

Sorry to be a pain with all the requests, but I have had a request for this in the last week from a fairly major client (along with the video stuff).
Is there a way you could point me in the right direction for coding this. I've tried doing with CSS, but it's not really working.

Thanks again
