Make OneNote not resize images on paste

At times I paste some rather large sized images into OneNote.  What I have been finding is OneNote is auto-sizing the images to make the images fit within the page/screen area.  I would rather it not resize the images but paste them as the original width and height.


Right now after I have pasted the image into OneNote I will manually rescale the image as close to normal as I can. But doing so I have lost quality in the image.  I am currently using OneNote 2010.
