While we’ve added the ability to crop images and display specific aspect ratios (by clicking on the image); however, the column size (1/3, 1/2, 2/3, etc.) the page author has selected decides the size of all the web parts in that section.
We are looking at ways to make this more flexible for images, without making it odd for other web parts, but haven’t finalized our approach yet.
While waiting on any update in relation to MS Office client app style resizing of images within the modern page experience. I recommend that people use images (ok I'm talking about photographs mainly that have been taken on mobile phones by non-Photographers) that have been captured in landscape mode (or 16:9 aspect ratio). These images seem to work well on the SharePoint pages.
Any update on this?
What team is working on it? I assume its the User Experiences team? There have been some nice developments/enhancements with a WOW factor and that demonstrate well (in short presentations) and I welcome these..
however the Page creation experience , in particular when it comes to images, for end users needs some attention.
the other peculiar thing I've noticed is that the page editor seems to enlarge the images. This is NOT a good experience. For example I took some screenshots from the mobile app , uploaded to SP , with the intention of creating an article to demonstrate/explain/introduce the mobile app. The screenshot doesn't even fit on a single screen within the web browser. So I've to scroll to see the entire screenshot. I get that SharePoint is supposed to be responsive .. i.e. it will scale the image down so it displays on a mobile device.. however , the experience when viewing the page in the web browser on a laptop is not an expected one.. Why doesn't the image on the laptop display on the one screen without my having to scroll? Am I don't something wrong?
We’re currently working on this feature now. You’ll be able to specify when your modern page actually gets published (date/time).
+1 Scheduled Publishing would be useful also the ability to have an expiry date on content.

It sounds like the "frequent" sites are not actually showing sites the logged in users is accessing frequently? Is that true?
Was thinking of promoting SPHome as a portal page for O365 . if it showed "frequently accessed" sites that would be a positive. If it shows the first sites that were accessed by the logged in user.. but not those "frequented" by the logged in user then this web part shouldn't be called "Frequent sites"
