images in library get resized

Hi All.  I have a question about saving groups of items into the library.  I have a project where I created a video introduction for a series of screen casting videos.  It begins with a world map that is larger than the screen and off center.  During the first 5 seconds of the introduction, this image shrinks down to fit within about 50% of the screen.  While this is happening, I have other animations happening.  Since I'm going to have to do many videos, I selected all of the intro items and saved them to the library.  The problem is that when I start a new project and use the library item, it's been scaled down.  Camtasia Studio seems to be taking the original image size (which is very large) and shrinking it to fit into the new screen size.  Everything else gets reduced as well.  Here's are links to what is look like when I use it from the Library and what is supposed to look like.  Any advice would be appreciated.

editing dimensions affect what library assets look like after they are added to timeline

try resizing the grouped library asset, after adding to timeline, to get it to look the way you want

Thanks for the suggestion.  That doesn't work well.  It makes my shadows etc... do funny things.  I got it all to work properly once, but can't seem to recreate my success.
