When I change pictures in MS publisher 2013, the picture is cropped to fit the existing image.   How do I prevent this happening?   I did not have this problem in Publisher 2007.

I'm guessing (based on experience of Office 2010 and previous Publisher versions) that if you select the 'Pictures' item in the objects section of the ribbon and right click it you can set the default properties for new pictures placeholders.

Also, if you right-click on a picture that has just been cropped to fit, you can reset the 'mode' from cropped to scaled.

There does not seem to be any way to do this in Publisher 2013.   Any other suggestions?

Try this:

Right click Picture, Format picture - Size Uncheck Lock Aspect Ratio - Uncheck Relative to original size.

Now when changing picture, it shrinks without cropping.

You may use Picture Tools -Format from the ribbon, then click In Crop group select fit.

Right-click and choose Change Picture. Then, after the picture is changed, click the "crop to fit" button on the Picture Tools tab of the Ribbon. This will make the picture fit like it did in older (2007 and prior) versions.

sorry, the other responses just showed up for me when I posted. But it's still a viable option.
