Image aspect ratio

Image aspect ratio stands for the proportions of an image. 

On Studio when you add an image, by default it will be added as ‘Box’ and its proportions won’t be maintained as you resize it, as in the example below. 

However, you can choose to fix the aspect ratio if you want. When you resize the image, the proportions will be maintained.

Setting a fixed aspect ratio

To maintain image aspect ratio as you resize a pic, choose ‘img’ from the top right corner of the image. 

NB: When you fix the aspect ratio, you won’t be able to access image properties such as Brightness, contrast and so on.
