copyPixels of large bitmap image into cast member containing smaller bitmap image

How do I do a copyPixels so that the resulting image is the SAME size (trimmed etc) as the original rect

  sr = sprite(1).rect
  mi = (the stage).image
  mt = member("picTemp")
  mt.image.copyPixels(mi, sr, sr)

If the original picTemp image is smaller than the sprite(1).rect, I don't get the whole image from sprite(1)

I want to have sprite(1) contain a bunch of different sized images, and to copy them EXACTLY into cast members At the Same Size, with no extra whitespace, or smaller, or cropped etc etc
