Standard image size for the Persona

As a Product Manager, I need the ability to use a more standard image size for personas, so that I can focus on my product rather than spending time looking for or creating an image that looks good in the unusual 5:1 ratio.

Acceptance criteria:

Any of the following ratios will work: 1:1, 2:3, 4:3, 4:5, 5:7, or 16:9

Alternatively, if we had the ability to pan, crop, center, and zoom in or out on an uploaded image, we could work with the existing size.

    I'd vote for keeping the image as uploaded, but allowing me to drag the image to fit within a template outline  (i.e. for the Persona view, show me how much of the image will show and allow me to drag the image to fit the portion I want to show, like they do for your headshot in products like LinkedIn)).  When used later for notebooks or other purposes, a different ratio may be appropriate for the image.

    It'll be great if we have choices to see the picture as a banner or a profile picture (portrait of the person)

    The sizing of the persona image is a very odd default choice. We have standard vertically-oriented headshots for our personæ. However, when I upload them to Aha! I get a creepy cropping of just their eyes.
