Yes, that's exactly it. The size of the containing image has to match 
the source image to the pixel, or the data will become corrupted.

You can get around that by putting the source into the container without 
using the imagedata at all:

   put img "source image.png" into img "destination.jpg"

The receiving image will resize to fit automatically if you have its 
lockLocation set to false.
