Neptune - Fixed shape thumbnails

Hi,
Really like the Neptune skin but would like to use fixed shape (1:1) for all thumbnails, not only for folder thumbnails. Is there a way to achieve this?

Not with the skin as it's currently built. That's been on my "maybe" list for Neptune for a while.

However, you can get to almost the same place by using Saturn, and turning off most of the thumbnail styling (borders, shadows, etc.). It uses the same lightbox.

Thank you jGromit for a quick reply! Would be great with the option for fixed shape thumbnails (even by a tweak of the skin files). I will give Saturn a try.

Much more than "a tweak."

Before someone chimes in with, "why not just apply the jAlbum fixed-shape filter to the thumbnails, but leave everything else alone," I need to point out that the justified gallery script that Neptune uses does not behave well with fixed-shape thumbnails. The thumbnail table needs a very different structure if it's going to work properly, which is what I do in, for example, Mercury and Pluto.
