Automatic fix

Rescale Picture     When you click this fix, Microsoft Publisher rescales the picture proportionally. Publisher uses the smallest dimension (width or height) as the basis, and then reduces the other dimension until the picture is proportional.

Rescale the picture precisely

  1. Right-click the picture, click Format Picture, and then click the Size tab.

  2. Under Scale, enter identical values in the Height and Width boxes. You can change the value in both boxes, but to restore the picture's proportion, the Height and Width must be the same value.

  3. Clear the Lock aspect ratio check box, and then select Relative to original picture size.

Reset the picture to its original size

  1. Select the picture that you want to restore.

  2. On the Picture toolbar, click Reset Picture Button image .

    Note: If clicking Reset Picture has no effect on the picture, right-click the picture, click Format Picture, click the Size tab, and then make sure that Relative to original picture size is selected. Then click Reset Picture again.
