You need to Control+Click on the graphic and choose Graphics > Runaround
Properties. Set the value to Don't Run Around and click Set.
Unfortunately, the default for imported graphics is to have the Runaround
set to Run around Contour. You might want to look at my RunaroundNone
plugin, which remedies this problem. See http://www.frameexpert.com/plugins/
