    Is there a way (in Pinnacle Studio 18 or 19) to change the drop zone orientation to portrait within the montage themes instead of landscape? I find it difficult to believe there would not be any montage themes with that design since photographs are not always in landscape. This would make it much easier to drop photos rather than having to edit them so they will fit properly.

      Hello Joe,

      We have a tool for this! In Pinnacle 19.5, you can set images to auto-fit to montage themes by using the to Setup(within Studio) > Control Panel > Project Settings > Montage Scaling menu.

      Hope this helps,
