I have a .doc file that I am editing using both MS Word 2007 and LO Writer
3.4.3. Why? - because LO does not handle Section breaks and a few other
things the same way MS Word does.

Anyhow ....

My problem is, after doing what needs to be done in MS Word, and then saving
the file and opening it using LO Writer, for some unknown reason - Writer is
automatically resizing the pictures (jpg files) in the document - reducing
their size,  and is also adding a border around them.

I have tried changing file format - saving the file in MS Word using the odt
format - and this did not resolve the problem.

Any ideas?

I tried a quick and dirty experiment of importing a picture (png) into
Writer. I did not have any border and filled the full width of the page.
I verified the border settings by checking the picture properties by
left clicking and opening Picture... Looking through the options, I
wonder if the picture anchoring setting in Word is different than
Writer. The default in Writer is anchor to paragraph. Another option is
whether in Word the default setting is to keep the height and width
ratio when inserting, was not set as a default for my picture.
