Every photo I’ve posted (mostly memes) has been truncated very very weirdly. Is this…intended?
From the iOS app photos are, by default, cropped square. You can press a little expando button in the bottom left to go back to the original aspect ratio.
I have to say, I’m not super cool with damaging a user’s posts as a product decision…
Micro.blog for iOS doesn’t take any photos itself — you’ll always be choosing an existing photo — so you should still have the original if you want to re-upload it at the full aspect ratio. If you upload from the Uploads screen on iOS, it skips the filter option so doesn’t default to square either, although you’ll need to copy the image reference into a new post. The web and macOS apps also don’t crop.
