imageView.frame = unwanted look

Sam Soffes

When I follow the instructions to set the image square and centered, I get a full screen image that is stretched. Here is my code:

CGSize size = self.view.bounds.size;
CGSize imageSize = CGSizeMake(size.width, size.height);

self.imageView.frame = CGRectMake(0.0, (size.height - imageSize.height) / 2.0, imageSize.width, imageSize.height);

Do you see something that I am missing?

Found it!

CGSize imageSize = CGSizeMake(size.width, size.width);

I was getting the size.height which was making the image fit to the height of the view as well... rookie mistake.
