Summary

The current default setting is "Scaled", which results in images that don't match the screen's aspect ratio being compressed along the X or Y axis which almost never looks good. Cropping the image instead of deforming it is a much better default setting.

Test Plan
  • Create new user account
  • Right-click on desktop > Configure Desktop
  • See that "Scaled and Cropped" is the default setting for the Image and Slideshow plugins

It works for the majority of wallpapers much better than just scaling.
