I'm not quite following what you want to do. Whatever image you add is saved 
with the original size. Then, in the entry editor, it's scaled, and also 
it's scaled in the entry view, as well. Did you add the thumbnail image to 
the collection, or the original?

And yes, it would be possible to hand-edit the xml. I'd suggest adding an 
image as you would like, do Fille->Export XML and look at that to compare 
one entry to the other to see what you want to change. I can offer specifics 
if you have questions.
