How to Get the Aspect Ratio of an Image From the Image URL Builder Tool

Last updated: Apr 21, 2022

One solution would be to create the container for the image, within a div or a picture tag, and use the url as a background. So there you can specify height or the like.
A second solution might be to set the img tag in a div, and on the image tag you could use the css property object-fit: cover to not have any overflow or stretched image.
