How do I reset a placed image to the original image's proportions?

I can see in my links pallet that the image is not the correct proportions but I'm not seeing a reset function to fix this. Am I missing something?

Select the linked image. In the Links palette flyout menu, go to Placement Options and check if the Preserve Proportions (Fill) option or the Preserve File Dimensions option may help.

 

This way does not work if your images are embedded.

This is good, but brings up another issue. lately, all my placed images have been coming in as embedded. This appears to be the new Adobe default. How do I change them to linked? Relinking no longer works to do this.

During placing, show options and check the Link checkbox. This should be sticky next time.

Great! I do recall that someone suggested a feature that would allow us to do this just by clicking a box in appearance.

I would try what Kurt suggested. If that doesn't work, you might have to place the image again.

If you go to Image Properties for that image and reset scaling to 100%, it will return to original proportions.
