Picture gets stretched when resizing picture frame.

Recommended Posts

With the Picture Frame selected with the Move Tool, the Context Toolbar will have a Properties button: image.png.593a71ecf94de9a541a72f082906af0b.png

Click it, and you'll have a bunch of options to choose from:

Which application are you talking about? How exactly do you resize the image frame?

Both for Designer and Publisher. I don't have Photo, so can't tell how frame works on that.

EDIT: Sorry, Designer doesn't have frames. But it's possible to make mask using shapes. So I think this topic is only for the Publisher users.

Publisher is the only Affinity application with Picture Frames.

If you're talking about Designer we'll need more detail (screenshots, actual sample document) to describe what you're doing.

If it's placed images you're talking about rather than actual picture frames, then make sure you're not holding down the shift key as this has the opposite effect that you might expect and allows it to lose it's original ratio rather than constrain it (There's an option for this in the preferences under the tools tab - Move Tool Aspect Constrain).
