Excel, Word and Powerpoint hold image dimensions fixed as defined at the moment the image is dragged and dropped into the template. Later application of filters sometimes caused distortion in the final result due to changes in dimensions.
The Images node has a new "Stretch" property that can be set to:
If you unlock the aspect ratio of an image when making adjustments to dimensions, the image may become distorted, but the image in the generated report will have the original aspect ratio.
After creating the report and entering a Name, optionally a Description, and setting any other parameters, open a new template in the Template Editor by clicking on the New icon in the Template group and then open the Save template as... window by clicking on the Save As icon in the Actions group.
After adding a QlikView object to a template as an Image or Table, some properties can be altered. To do so:
Now that you know how to do that, we can proceed.

Image has the same size as in the QlikView doc, 7.46" x 4.4". NPrinting has ignored the height and width settings.
The image has the height specified in height setting, 2" and the width has been adjusted proportionately to 3.39".
The image width has been reduced to the specified 5" width and the aspect ratio kept at 1:1.7.
Image height and width may be equal to or less than the QlikView image dimensions. Given that the height has been set to 5", the height remains 4.4" and the aspect ratio 1:1.7
The dimensions have been increased proportionally to 8.28" x 4.88", maintaining an aspect ratio of 1:1.7 but potentially causing image resolution problems.
