There is another round about way to Resize the Image. Select the Image, then move the mouse over one of the 8 Black Squares that appear around it.

When the Cursor turns into a 2 Sided Arrow, hold down the Left mouse button and drag. While dragging you can see the numbers in the Property Bar are changing. So you drag until you get to "55%" and release the mouse.

Scale the Red Flower to "25%" and the Pink Flower to "30%".
