Hello, do you know any Python? I highly recommend using Python with
PIL (Python Image Library) to preprocess your images for GEM.

I actually had a similar problem for a Flash site I designed, where
all things needed to be in a landscape orientation. I wrote script
checks the size of an image, and converts "portrait" to "landscape" by
making a new landscape image made up of a black rectangle and pasting
the portrait image in the center. If you want examples of the scripts
I can email some to you later.

Developing stuff like this in Python is quite easy, and dare I say,
fun... especially because once you can do bread and butter image
operations, you may realize that you can also write scripts to do
glitchy and generative operations on your images.
