Insert picture unexpectedly crops it on the top and bottom.

Hi. Whenever I add a picture in to a Writer document it crops off the top and bottom. Why is this and what can I do to fix it? I’m in Linux Mint 13 Maya with Libre Office

Also I’ve tried to install a new version of Libre Office but I can’t do it. I’ve fully updated the OS but it didn’t update Libre for some reason. I tried to download it manually but it’s just an enormous package of .deb files. How to install all of this?

Having a look at both links might help you.
