ImageSize vs AspectRatio->Automatic

I have just discovered the option ImageSize for graphics.
After some playing I gathered that to use it you must specify in
advance BOTH width and height. If you only write
ImageSize -> 200 you will get a 200x200 square bounding
box, no matter the shape of the graphics.

Does anybody know if we can impose the width only, and
let the height be calculated from the graphics?

It would be nice if I could write something like

        ImageSize -> {200,Automatic}

(it doesn't work).

The only way I know to get the effect I want is to drag
the handles of the bounding box manually (on a Macintosh).
