How to reset the scale of an imported image to its original values

Once you have imported an image into Revit and then warped it (by unticking the Lock Proportions box and resizing it), then it is not immediately evident how you can reset it to 1:1 (its default X:Y state).  Even if you toggle the tick box, it doesn't reset the scale to be un-warped.

Here is how you can do it:
  1. Select image and Edit Type
  2. Take note of the pixel sizes
  3. Directly set the image size using these values in the instance properties
  4. Tick the Lock Proportions box


Also, did you notice that Revit records where the image was originally loaded from?  Even though there is no 'link' as such, this does allow you to find and edit the source image easily.
