Drop 4:5 Photo Ratio Requirements; Respect Existing Photo Ratio (Doc ID 1947868.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Rather then force customers to customize the PeopleSoft application, it would be desirable if PeopleSoft “shrunk” or downscaled photos without altering the photo’s size ratio. Because photos in most of the self-service pages in Peoplesoft HCM 9.2 are stretched to meet the 4:5 ratio requires, most of our photos appear distorted within the application, causing complaints from users. Note that our photo are loaded into PeopleSoft in "square" 1:1 ratio format.

The feature was logged as an Enhancement to the Development under <Bug 20066714>.

ENHANCEMENT REQUEST
As of now, the Org chart displays the image, as it is present in the system, but in the page "HRCD_PROFILE_SBP" it is set to display the image in the aspect ratio 4:5 (i.e, width: 80 height: 100). Any image present in the system will be represented in that ratio only, irrespective of their original aspect ratio. However, you can modify the properties of record name DERIVED_HRCD_PR and field name EMPLOYEE_PHOTO and convert the image with (width: 80 Height: 80), but then it will display all the images present in the system in the format of width: 80 & Height: 80". Instead of forcing customers to customize the PeopleSoft application, it would be desirable if PeopleSoft shrunk or down scaled photos without altering the photo's size ratio. As of now photos in most of the self-service pages in Peoplesoft HCM 9.2 are stretched to meet the 4:5 ratio requires, most of our photos appear distorted within the application, causing complaints from users.
