Anyone have a tool that I can use to set aspect ratios on images for uplaods?  I'm getting stretched vertical mimages.

If you only specify a width, the height of an img will adjust properly.  You just have to make sure no height is declared.

Is there a way to look at the image on submit and determine if it's a landscape or portrait and then set the width or height based on that?

Never thought of that, but turns out it is pretty easy.  You just have to use the System.Drawing.Bitmap object:
//this just represent getting your image into a Bitmap        
Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(Server.MapPath(".") + "\\images\\starrating.gif");
if(bmp.Height > bmp.Width)
  //Portrait
else
  //Landscape
