Specifies if the user interface should show the resizing of the picture based on the picture's current size or its original size. If this attribute is set to true, then scaling will be relative to the original picture size as opposed to the current picture size.


If this attribute is set to true then a value of 50% will be shown. Similarly, if this attribute is set to false, then a value of 100% should be shown because the picture has not yet been resized from its current (smaller) size. ]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the XML Schema boolean datatype.
