…OmniGraffle is not limited to the shapes that you can…make inside the program or the shapes contained in stencils.…You can also import images that then become objects inside OmniGraffle.…Let's see how that works.…I've got a blank canvas and I'm just going to go to File > Place image.…If you want to follow along with me, just navigate to your…exercise files > Chapter Seven, and I've got a JPEG there called Suite.…So we open that up and our image is imported in to the OmniGraffle interface.…And for most intents and purposes it now works like an object.…
There are some special features.…So let's open up our inspectors and I'm going to close everything that…we don't need and just focus on this one here, the Image Inspector.…And we have some choices here, and these across here…just deal with what happens when we resize this image.…So, by default, we're set on Stretched.…And that means, if I change the size of the object,…the image it contains is stretched with no regard to aspect ratio.…So we are distorting that as we stretch it.…
