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'
Regards from
Tom :)
My previous reply may have an error in it: the part about Position and Size. If a figure is a drawing of some type, you need to know its dimensions. Then you can select the size of the frame to match its size. If the figure is a graphics file, you can insert it into the frame. Then right click it. Select Picture from the context menu. When the Picture dialog opens, click the Original Size button. The the Height and Width boxes reveals what the original size is. Then change the size of the frame to match.
