Description Mohith Manoj 2017-05-10 08:32:22 UTC
* An image is inserted into a slide.
* Image is cropped (RMB > Crop).
* Fit image to content frame by,
  * Select layout 'Title Only'.
  * Select layout 'Title, content' or any other layout with title and multiple contents.

Expected outcome.
* Image is stretched to fit the frame while maintaining aspect ratio.

Observed outcome
* Image is stretched to match dimensions of the frame without respecting aspect ratio.

In LO Writer this be could fixed through 'RMB > Properties - Crop'. Impress does not have any means to change image dimensions in a similar manner. 'RMB > Position and Size..' does not have any means to correct an error in aspect ratio.

There is an option ('RMB > Original Size') to restore size to original condition but even that does not take into account the crop factor.

No problem here. I think you should try version 5.3.3.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists and provide an example file at the cropping step. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

-> In LO Writer this be could fixed through 'RMB > Properties - Crop'. 
Impress does have the same feature: Menu Bar Format -> Images -> Crop dialog
