I am making Master Slides in PowerPoint with place holders in a custom layout. However, when I create new slides with that layout, images I insert into the placeholders are cropped off. I want my image scaled to fit the placeholder while maintaing its proportions (it doesnt need to fill the entire placholder). I'm using PowerPoint 2007 in Windows XP.

If you press ctrl+z after inserting the image, it stretches it to full screen. But can't find a way to create a correct-dimensions background, myself. –  Wolfpack'08 Jun 19 at 0:03
