I apologize again. This is my original question:

I normally use tables to arrange figures within a page (i.e., a 2col x
1 row for 2 figures) The problem is that normally figures get reshaped
(and distorted) to fit the cell, while what I would like is to get the
cell shape to fit the figure. How can I do it?
Also, is there a better way to arrange figures in a page?
I've tried using columns, but I have the same problem: figures get
reshaped and do not keep their width x height ratio.

Hi :)
Oops.  I'm not easily confused but isn't this confusing?  Errrr, what was the question again?  I 
mean the unanswered one not the one you solved without our 'help'

Tom :)
I use frames to arrange figures on a page. Each frame is anchored as a character in its own separate paragraph. I also set the alignment in the frame to Center. The figure is anchored as a character. This permits me to place two figures into the frame and have the figures centered. When creating the frame, make sure it is larger than the figure or figures that it will contain. If it is one figure, right click the figure and select Position and Size to see what its dimensions are. Then right click the border of the frame and select Position and Size. If necessary, adjust the size of the frame to match the size of the frame or frames. I have a paragraph style which has Center as its alignment. This places the figure in the center horizontally.
