Hlymzik, I recently became aware of the ability to resize images based on their height rather than width. See the following examples below:

Tomato soup

250px wide

Tomato soup

250px high

Here's the code:

[[File:FILENAME.FILETYPE|123px]] -- set width
[[File:FILENAME.FILETYPE|x123px]] -- set height (note the x before 123px)
