Scale an Image

Responding to a post at RevitForum I created this brief video that shows how I used the Scale tool to change the size of a image file in Revit. The image in the video is based on a sketch that Cyril Verley used in his Revit training curriculum books for several years. I believe it is based on a Richard Meier building.

The video describes:
  • Select the image
  • Click the Scale tool (I keep calling it Resize, the old name)
  • Click the Origin (or first "known" point)
  • Click the Second Point (second "known" point)
  • Provide the correct dimension for between the known points.
  • Et Voila!

This works nicely if your images is not distorted. Is there a way to stretch the image differently in x and Y axis?

Maybe that's a better job for Photoshop? Then use the fixed image in Revit?
