Portraits in family tree are contained in invisible frames of 200x200 pixels. If you upload photos that bigger than 200x200 pixels, they are resized to fit 200x200 pixels frames. The original portraits may be different sizes but they should be the same aspect ratio so that when they are resized to fit the invisible frames they are the same size in family tree. The easiest ratio of width and height is 1 : 1, width = height i.e. crop them in squares.

The same idea can be applied to crop photos in rectangles. If you keep the ratio of width and height = 2 : 3 for every photo in different size, when they are resized to fit the invisible frames they will be the same size in family tree because respect ratio is maintained while they are resized.
