Image Style Property Card
Select a scaling strategy and an alignment in the controls above.
|Contain||Scales the Video as large as possible within its container without cropping or stretching the image.|
|Cover||Scales the Video (while preserving its ratio) to the smallest possible size to fill the container (that is: both its height and width completely cover the container), leaving no empty space. If the proportions of the background differ from the element, the image is cropped either vertically or horizontally.|
|Stretch||Distorts the image so it fits the available space|
