Thumbnail quality poor for images with high aspect ratio

Bug Description

Priority of this bug: Low
Problem: Hugin is a application that automagically merges several small images to a big one which allows for easy generation of panorama images without statives or other specialized hardware. These fotos inport and display well with shotwell. But if I create a big panorama image that is ten times as wide as it is high the shotwell thumbnail is rather blurry. So I thought I report this bug.

Hi Peter,

Any chance you could attach a screenshot demonstrating the issue?

I attempted testing with this image here:

but the thumbnail was so tiny it was difficult to tell if it was blurry or not.
