Bitmap images does not inherit settings from the template
Without this there is no way to set a border, rotate the image, add a shadow or a reflection, etc.
In our 16.2.0 release, we released new functionality where out and import tags of type bitmap are treated as objects by the template instead of tags. This allows all of the properties to be set on a bitmap (like a border) to be set using office, and no longer are may properties set in Designer. With this change and others, this functionality is hopefully finished and fulfills this request. Thank you for your submission, and please submit any other ideas you might have!

We have implemented some of this for DOCX -> DOCX for version 13. We will do a lot more of this, including XLSX templates and PDF/HTML output in version 14.

Totally agree that some extra properties would be very desirable when inserting images into Excel 2010 e.g. Format all Pictures using Size: Lock aspect ratio and Properties: Move and size with cells. Also an ability to preserve the AutoFit Row Height property would be useful to avoid the user having to do this after report generation. Excel 2010 (.xlsx) currently uses the height as seen in the template design even if the row uses the Excel AutoFit Row Height property.
