Apparently I missed a message here: I didn't get the one with the full
If anyone knows how to get the original size of an image, we could
simply handle the resizeControl method and check to see if a key is
being held down down (maybe controlKey or shiftKey) and adjust the
Something like this:
if the first word of the abbreviated name of the target is "image"
and the shiftKey is down then
put the height of the target into curhigh
put the width of the target into curwide
put the <original height> of the target into orighigh
put the <original width> of the target into origwide
put origwide/orighigh into aspect1
put orighigh/origwide into aspect2
multiply aspect1 by curhigh
multiply aspect2 by curwide
if aspect1 > curwide then
set the height of the target to aspect2
else if aspect2 > curhigh then
set the width of the target to aspect1
Obviously, we could simply record the original width/height before
resizing, and this could be used to maintain the aspect "as is" during
the resize, but I would personally prefer to maintain the original
aspect ratio recorded in the image file. Is it possible to get that
info from rev (the actual pixel width and height recorded in an image)?
