In LR Classic you can lay out an image cell of a certain shape and size. When an image is a different shape than the cell, if not auto-cropped on two edges (by the 'zoom to fill' option) it will fall short leaving gaps on two edges ('zoom to fit'). Such gaps reflect each image's particular crop shape and are currently distributed equally (centring the image in the cell).
It would be useful to have an option to "pin" one edge of a particular cell, e.g. the top, or to otherwise set a more general preference such that whenever an image's aspect ratio makes it fall short vertically, no gap will show at the top: all spare space being distributed to the bottom of its cell.
This would allow a sequence of images to all lay out consistently on three sides, each showing its full composition, with the fourth side producing a naturally varying distance from image to paper edge.
