     I suggest you create a frame that has the properties you want the
picture to have default width and two columns. Then create an AutoText
with these properties. If you want a frame that is 7 cm wide with only
one column, create an AutoText with these properties. Then anytime you
want to insert a picture select the appropriate AutoText and insert the
picture into the frame.
