When uploading user profile images, Craft forces you to crop it to a square. Is there a way to keep the images untouched instead?
You could add a custom asset field for the users' profile images and hide the default one in the CP.
Here's a plugin to do this: Control Panel CSS by Lindsey D
Maybe not the answer you are looking for, but I asked a similar question. I needed to grab the original size of the user uploaded images.
You can just use
getPhotoUrl('original') when calling the images on the front end.
This doesn't give you an 'untouched' version of the image but Craft stores the original and makes it easy to call.
