Projects cover image settings
To crop the project cover click on the little crop icon in the left top corner of the Cover thumbnail.
Create a custom size (example: width:600px and height:800px), and then go to every even number projects, and crop their cover image to that size. Then go back to the Work page options and select other sizes (example: width:800px and height:600px), and go to odd number projects and crop their cover images with that size. Select the masonry option in the Work page options.
