I placed an image in illustrator and the bouding box is a lot larger than the image. I tried place an image in a new file and then copy/paste into my file, which works but then it changes in size again.

Liz,

 

Are you sure there is nothing up there in the top right corner or elsewhere?

 

You can deselect and ClickDrag over the seemingly empty parts, or look in the Layers panel, or in the Appearance panel, or in Outline View, for clues.

are you re-linking a previously placed image?

 

this usually happens when one places an image with Preserve File Dimensions Options. Then one relinks another image as shown below. It looks like your sample.
