When I upload a graphic image---typically a photo---in the visual editor, the editor currently offers several photo dimensions (the width seems fixed, but the height can vary). The largest seems to be 470 by x, where "x" varies according to the photo proportions. I assume that this is because at one time 470 was the right width for the themes in use.
However, I have a theme for which the natural width is 650, not 470. So every time I upload a photo, I have to go into the HTML editor and change the display dimensions of the image from 470 by x to 650 by y, "y" being set to maintain the same aspect ratio.
Why not offer the user a chance to set the width s/he wants, and then scale the height appropriately---that is, let me enter "650" as my default width someplace, and then I don't have to tinker with the dimensions in the HTML editor.
Just a thought. Thanks for listening
