Default Stop Thumbnail Images Distortion

This fix works only if you have resized your thumbnails to the size you want them to appear.
I used a batch program called Media Resizer that I downloaded from and it worked very good to resize all of the images in my thumbnail directory in one shot.

After my thumbnails were sized to 120 max width or 120 max length to insure that the thumbnails never exceded 120 either direction then I found the file


Located this line of code


and deleted it.

It works well for me and now my thumbnails look like the originals.

If you have any problems just replace the original file from your skin1_originals or replace the line you deleted.

I hope this helps someone.

Also if using 3.4.0 or later just login and go to apperance settings and change the width to 00 instead of the deafult 70 and it will keep your thumbnails just as they already where and that way you don't have to change any files that you do not need to.

Default How to you fix it with version 3.3.8

I looked for /customer/main/products_t.tpl

line of code


But could not find it.

Is there another way in version 3.3.8 to not have the thumbnails look so crappy?
