    set_post_thumbnail_size( 50, 50 ); // 50 pixels wide by 50 pixels tall, resize mode
    

    Set the default Post Thumbnail size by cropping the image (either from the sides, or from the top and bottom):

    set_post_thumbnail_size( 50, 50, true ); // 50 pixels wide by 50 pixels tall, crop mode
    

    Set the default Post Thumbnail size by cropping the image from top left:

    set_post_thumbnail_size( 50, 50, array( 'top', 'left')  ); // 50 pixels wide by 50 pixels tall, crop from the top left corner
    

    Set the default Post Thumbnail size by cropping the image from the center:

    set_post_thumbnail_size( 50, 50, array( 'center', 'center')  ); // 50 pixels wide by 50 pixels tall, crop from the center
