photos are displayed about 6x smaller than they are

Reported by Helmut K. C. Tessarek | May 6th, 2013 @ 12:07 PM | in 1.1 (closed)

I've added a jpg to my key, but the picture is displayed about 6 times smaller than the actual size.

The picture I added had the dimensions 351x351, but in the 'Photos' tab it is shown as 57x57.
Then I added another picture of the size 1403x1403 and it is shown as 228x228.

I tried different dimensions as well and every time it was about 1/6th of the actual size. This seems like a bug to me, since the Photo tab has a field that is about 400x390 by default. I assume that there is a bug in the scaling algorithm.

I've verified with other key management tools (Enigmail/TB) and they show the pictures in the correct size.
