In the command above, we specified a percentage. That’s because we don’t want our image to be too tightly cropped on the face. So, we’ve requested an image that is 200% of the width and height of the detected face.

Next, we need to set the image to the right size. Using scale_crop, we scale the detected face to the right size and crop away anything that doesn’t fit into the dimensions we specify.
