Im finding that images are inserted with a change in aspect ratio. Images are stretched and i have to manually adjust.

More details on how you're inserting them?

I use the Picture Frame Rectangle Tool > Replace Image. The issue seems to occur not usually when i replace an image first time, but when replacing the original image with another. First here is the original image

This one after its replaced (actually withe the same image)

I wondered if that frame had been resized using the detached handle (lower right) which would scale the content, rather than using a corner handle.

I would have expected the new image to be loaded with its default aspect ratio, irrespective of  the container it was being loaded into and even if it had a different size, aspect ratio etc. The image may well then not fit size wise, but adjustments and resizing would then be based on the imported files aspect ratio not the containers.

Otherwise you would be guessing what the original aspect ratio was or wouldn't know what to set the container to unless you knew the image to be loaded aspect ratio

That's not correct. The whole purpose of having a text frame is to keep text frame as is, while you change its contents. One would not want to change the aspect ratio of a Picture Frame Tool when the image is replaced. If you want that, you would need to use the File > Place option, and that WILL change the image and its aspect ratio. 

However, this really depends on the fit properties of the Text Frame. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Am i reading this correctly or maybe ive not been clear. I dont want to change the aspect ratio when i import into the frame. My point is that the aspect ratio is changed on the new imported image. Ill use File > Place and see how that works and report back if needed.
