How do I size my photo so the whole picture is in thumbnail

When ever I upload my pictures it cuts off half of my picture so that when you view it in the search engine you only see part of it in the thumbnail. I have seen sellers, especially clothing sellers have their entire image in the thumbnail. How do I do this? What are the measurements that I need to re size it to?
Help. My pretty dresses don't look so pretty when you can only see the middle of them :(

There is a double trick there. Yes, you need to make it square if you don't want anything cut off, but then it is best to leave room for when the item is seen in gallery format ( as apposed to list). I always try to make sure there is about a fifth of the photo on top that can be lost for this reason. Hope that helps!

Thumbnails have to be square. 1000 pixels X 1000 pixels to avoid fuzzyness. If you dont have a photo editing program download Picasa from google. You can easily crop your photos and it will tell you how many pixels wide and tall it is after you crop, so you can judge if it is square. I crop mine with a little room to spare so it still looks good when at the full size in my shop
