Resize images to a target size without aspect ratio distortion.

TensorFlow image datasets typically yield images that have each a different size. However, these images need to be batched before they can be processed by Keras layers. To be batched, images need to share the same height and width.

You could simply do:

size = (200, 200)
ds = ds.map(lambda img: tf.image.resize(img, size))
```

However, if you do this, you distort the aspect ratio of your images, since
in general they do not all have the same aspect ratio as `size`. This is
fine in many cases, but not always (e.g. for GANs this can be a problem).

Note that passing the argument `preserve_aspect_ratio=True` to `resize`
will preserve the aspect ratio, but at the cost of no longer respecting the
provided target size. Because <a href="../../../../tf/image/resize"><code>tf.image.resize</code></a> doesn't crop images,
your output images will still have different sizes.

#### This calls for:



```python
size = (200, 200)
ds = ds.map(lambda img: smart_resize(img, size))
```

Your output images will actually be `(200, 200)`, and will not be distorted.
Instead, the parts of the image that do not fit within the target size
get cropped out.

The resizing process is:

1. Take the largest centered crop of the image that has the same aspect ratio
as the target size. For instance, if `size=(200, 200)` and the input image has
size `(340, 500)`, we take a crop of `(340, 340)` centered along the width.
2. Resize the cropped image to the target size. In the example above,
we resize the `(340, 340)` crop to `(200, 200)`.
