problem with images from Indesign CS5.5

Hi all

This is probably slightly OT as it is something Indesign is doing I think. Hopefully this is my last problem for the moment.

I had some CS5 documents that I converted to ePub and all the images seems to end up as expected in the ePub when I ticked on "Formatted" in the export options. This meant any sizing/cropping on the page was applied to the images upon export. I'm using CS5.5 now and now when I view my ePubs in iBooks images are different sizes. An example is attached - the three images all looked the same size in CS5's ePub. Needless to say this problem is only visible in iBooks. In ADE they all look as expected.

Looking at the ePub the middle (smaller) image is actually smaller in the OEBPS\Images folder, so Indesign is clearly doing that. The code for the three images is

 <div class="Basic-Text-Frame">
   <p class="authors-pic"><img alt="CL-433686-Bradshaw%20et%20al-SimonBradshaw.jpg" class="image" height="72" src="../Images/CL-433686-Bradshaw%20et%20_fmt.jpeg" width="72" /></p>

   <p class="authors-pic"><img alt="CJMcolourheadshotFeb2011.jpg" class="image" height="71" src="../Images/CJMcolourheadshotFeb20_fmt.jpeg" width="71" /></p>

   <p class="authors-pic"><img alt="CL-433686-Bradshaw%20et%20al-IanWalden.JPG" class="image" height="72" src="../Images/CL-433686-Bradshaw%20et_fmt1.jpeg" width="72" /></p>
I noticed that the middle one is marked to be 71px rather than 72px - I changed that in the code but it didn't help. CS5 didn't add these sizes to the code. If I take them out altogether it doesn't help since the images themselves are different sizes. iBooks doesn't seem to be honouring them.

The images in ID are different sizes and resolutions. I suppose what I need is a way to simulate CS5's "Formatted" setting. I've played around with the settings but to no avail. Anyone suggest the best way forward?
