will try :-).

say your input photo/image is 1920x1080 pixels.  then, to get from "square"
image_map to correct proportion, a 'scale <1.92,1.08,1>' would restore the
aspect[*].  as for where to place the 'scale', fwiw, I tend to make it part of
the 'texture' or 'pigment' containing the map.  eg:
  plane {
    z,1
    texture {
      pigment { ...the image_map... }
    }
    scale <1.92,1.08,1>
  }

[*] approximate/close is often good enough.  for instance, for one of my
project's, the source jpg is 624x351 and I use a 'scale <10,6,1>'


regards, jr.
