Ken, thanks for this info. I didn't realise you could edit the 
individual objects of a group without putting the group into edit 
mode - if this is in the docs, I ain't seen it.

As to your second point, what do you mean by the last sentence - what 
if I **did**  know the dimensions of the image? I'm sorry but I don't 
quite grasp your meaning here. The fact is I have a lot of little 
images I want to do this to, and for other reasons I was thinking of 
making them all the same size - so this technique might be relevant 
to me.
