varying sizes

Since my Pi images never contain "real" data anywhere near 8GB, next time I need to do this I'm going to use dd - which will write until it fails unlike some other utilities which refuse to write at all - and then fsck (GParted) to "fix" the partition size. Might work, you never know!
