Shrinking an image to a button icon

I got that button icon to work, now I want to show the original picture in a
floating palette that the user can move around. I chose the palette format
so they can navigate to different stacks and the picture will still float
with them. Is the palette a good strategy for that?
I'm still controlling the size of the picture, but I want to show a larger
one as an option. Here's the script. I can't seem to get the stack window
to exactly frame the picture. Should I be changing the card rect?...
go stack "Picture"
put 300 into theTargetSize -- adjust size here
set the filename of last img to the pictPath of me
put theTargetSize/the formattedwidth of last img into theRatio
set the width of last img to theTargetSize
set the height of last img to \
round(the formattedheight of last img * theRatio)
get the rect of last img
set the rect of stack "Picture" to it
palette stack "Picture"
