Proposal: Add a Maintain aspect ratio checkbox to the picture dialog. If this is checked then when creating a new picture object the aspect ratio will be maintained. This would be relatively simple.

More difficult would be enforcing the aspect ratio when a picture object is saved to a graphics file, printed, or dropped onto another object (changing its parent). For these cases we could assume that the top-left corner remains fixed in aspect relative to the parent.

Are there any other such cases?

Should we prefer to modify the width or the height to maintain the aspect ratio?
Or possibly whichever necessitates the smaller change in pixel space.
