    Pass -1 as the value for height and width.

    Thanks rorya!
    Is there any way to keep the aspect ration, but define a size as well?
    Cause the original size is so big, you need to zoom out in order to change size.

    Yes. Assuming you don't know the aspect ratio to begin with, just use -1 to insert, lock the aspect ratio, then resize it. The Shape obejct has a LockAspectRatio property for this.
