Images in worksheets

Excel support at least two ways of adding images to spreadsheets: as a floating object, and as cell content.  PHPExcel seems to only be able to handle the former.

In my app, I have an image in column A.  These images differ in size, although they are roughly the same size. The problem I have is that something is happening that is causing the images to all scale in one axis, thus leaving the image visually distorted.  I have tried everything I can think of to counter this, and nothing is working.  If I leave out the images, I can open the spreadsheet in OpenOffice or Excel, and add the images fine (either as floating objects or cell content).\

Has anyone expereicend this and come up with a solution?  Any ideas what is going on?
