Images from the web being squished

    Hi! When I load an image from the Web using its URL and add a caption, the image appears squished. I used to just drag the image to the proper size once it was loaded and didn’t have problems with aspect ratio. The last few times I’ve tried, when I add it without a caption, it looks fine and I can drag it to size. When I add a caption, the image is squished. I’m not sure if you can tell or not, but aspect ratio on the last image I added on the draft entitled “persepolis” is off.
    Thanks for your help!

    Please post van active link to a post or page that has this “squishing” issue in it. It does seem to me that if the images are oversized for the maximum displayed image width in your theme then squishing chopping off one side or squishing would be expected behavior.
