On the media library editor list, it would be helpful to have the width and height.

Hey Jeff,

I'll also mention it's possible to specify thumbnail sizes for the media library be editing the upload field in the "Media Library" section (https://example.com/cmsb/admin.php?menu=database&action=editTable&tableName=_media). However, this thumbnail set is used site-wide for all media library items, which can be somewhat restrictive. I do think that more detailed size controls would be a helpful addition.

I use the same specific sizes for all my images in all my section editors to optimize for Bootstrap breakpoints and already adjusted the media library to match those values. I also take advantage of the picture element for a good responsive design experience. 

Not all the images start out the same size. I resize all imported originals to 1920x1920. The image may be smaller than this but I never want them bigger. My thumbs  are then set to

1280x1280
1024x1024
800x800
480x480

If I need to have a difference size say for a bio photo, I use a different upload field with different specs.

My section editors all have 'image' upload and 'document' upload. Some have a 'photo' upload and 'banner' upload. This setup allows a great deal of flexibility with very little overhead.

I have developed my app with modules for bios, blog, events, real estate listings, site owner info, ads, testimonials and several more. I can turn modules on and off for specific clients. All my configuration is done using yaml files.

I have approximately 35 clients using my app and am continually adding new options as clients request them.

The media library is a great addition, now I just need a document library for PDF files.
