Search for "anchored frame properties" in the manual
or online Help.

You can manually resize using the sizing notes around
the graphic, but I don't recommend it as you may
distort the image. Use a larger DPI value for a
smaller image and a smaller DPI value for a larger

A 96 DPI image imported ar 100 DPI in FrameMaker will
be slightly smaller than the original 96 DPI image...

PLay with it to find the right size for your needs.
