In ImageMagick I can say:
$ convert marcelle.jpg -thumbnail 300x1000 -quality 90 -unsharp 0x.5 marcelle_th.jpg
The -thumbnail 300x1000 part means: resize proportionally, and be smaller than or equal to width 300 and height 1000. In other words, 300x1000 represents a maximal bounding box.
But in RMagick, pic.thumbnail(300,1000) does not resize proportionally - instead, it makes an image whose size is exactly 300x1000.
Of course I can work around this by using GreaterGeometry and change_geometry, but my point is that having to do so makes thumbnail kind of useless. So I suggest that the lack of match between ImageMagick's thumbnail behaviour and RMagick's thumbnail behavior is a possible bug.
