I have a set of biography images in the site I'm working on, and I have an image style that will enforce the correct size for these. Of course I'd rather not have them resized if they don't need it, so I'm wondering if the resize & crop effect will be skipped if the image is already the perfect size.
In other words, if the image is 130 x 170, and the effect of the image style would be to resize & crop it to make it 130 x 170, will the Image module be clever enough to skip that effect and leave it alone (so as not to degrade quality)?
If it will process the image anyway, then obviously I'll want to simply display the original image. It would be very useful if the module were clever enough to know when not to run, so the image style could be there as a failsafe in case some future content editor is too lazy to crop the images beforehand.
