Easy to fix. Instead of just inserting the image, wrap it with Image and use the ImageSize option to Image. E.g.,
Column[{Image[pic, ImageSize > 300], "Mathematica 9 is here"}]
where either you've assigned to pic the inserted image or actually pasted a copied image right there.

Of course the cell cannot be evaluated, so I have turn off that option. If there is a way to add the caption, I wonder whether the whole cell  picture + caption  could be centered justified. >>> >> >>  >> Murray Eisenberg murray@math.umass.edu >> Mathematics & Statistics Dept. >> Lederle Graduate Research Tower phone 413 5491020 (H) >> University of Massachusetts 413 5452838 (W) >> 710 North Pleasant Street fax 413 5451801 >> Amherst, MA 010039305 >> >> >> >> >> >
