I placed a new image into my InDesign document. Now when I try to resize this image using the points on the corner, it is resizing only the frame and causing my image to cut off. How can I make sure both the image and frame are being resized instead of just one?

Hold down the command key / ctrl key, wait 3 seconds and change frame.

If this fails (what sometimes happen), select the frame, in the application bar (control bar at the top) check Autor-fit. Then resize.

Use the Free Transform tool (E) instead of the Selection tool (V).

Hey, isn't the easiest and fastest way to do this Ctrl (Cmd) + Shift + dragging a handle?

Ctrl (Cmd) here is for resizing frame and content simultaneously, Shift - for maintaining original proportions.

No special selections or waiting needed.

Brandon is placing an image, so what happens depends on what tool happens to be selected during the place.

So if I have the white Direct Selection tool (or most other tools) active during the place and then Command-Shift drag, l get this:

With the Text tool active I get this and is what Brandon is describing:

Command-Shift Works when the black Selection tool is active, so I can hit V to get it, or E to get Transform. With Transform all I need is Shift to constrain, and then it has the advantage of rotations and shears
