Scalling images in the editor does not correctly set the height or width correctly.

When I try to scale images down using the corner select points, the image looks fine in the editor. When I save the article the image appears to have scaled down the width correctly but the height is still its original size, making the image stetched. this sometimes happens with the width of the image also.

The image is a .jpg - 500x800px @ 72dpi

When I scale the image to 67px wide, the HTML Source for the image in the editor it shows the image code as:

<img alt="test" class="pull-left" height="660" src="/" style="width: 67px;" width="621" />

Please can this be fixed.

Hi Thomas Powley.

Thank you for reporting this.

We are unable to reproduce this issue. It is probably a CSS style in your template that is causing the this.

Kind Regards
