If you absolutely have to, place the image, select it and safe it as an object.
Then place it with the object tool – you now can stretch it.

Hi runxel,

I saved it as an object. then placed it with the object tool as you said but the object (the image that I saved as an object) that I place it is showing only white.

If you place an image using the 'Figure' tool, you can stretch it around however you want.

Hah, sometimes the good is just a click away. The figure tool is banned from my work environment, but it seems there is a reason to have it after all. :wink:
