Magento is Scaling Images to hideous dimensions

Here’s my dilemma: We have 2 sizes of images we use for our catalog- A small size for the catalog/browsing display and then a larger image for when you’re just viewing the item all by itself. My larger image is (194 x 311. Weird, I know, but it’s just a test for the moment), but when magento displays it on the product page it blows it up to 265x425 and it looks HORRIBLE. I have it marked as “Base Image”.

How can I keep magento from murdering my image?

Seems to be that if the image exceeds 256 wide or some mysterious amount of height it’ll go ahead and scale it by some factor. So keep ‘em tidy
