Image Scaling Problem

Just my guess about this…

If you have a large image and you have resized it to be smaller, and use code or the inspector to lock it, that’s one variation. It could be that you at some point you want to show the image at its original size.

If you made it smaller and want to always have it at the smaller size, that’s a different case. Setting the imagedata of the image to the imagedata of the image will permanently resize it. It won’t needing locking to remain at that size.

I think the second option is rarely what you would want to do, because the scaling quality isn’t ideal. You would normally import the image at its intended size.
