Good suggestion but no dice. The page setup option has only options for
sending an image to the printer, and I couldn't find anything relevant
in the help when search "page size." There's also no "page size" command
in any of the menus.

The workaround I've decided to use is to create an image that's just a
giant white nothing (GWN) and paste my original image onto it. I figure
I'll then keep the GWN around and use it if the same situation occurs in
the future.

(And hey, did I just invent a new piece of tech writer jargon -- GWN?)

Maybe something about page size or page setup?

Just guessing. I use an ancient copy of SnagIt.
