Including option RotationAction->"Fit" almost works: the image stays of a fixed size EXCEPT when I finally release the mouse after rotating the image. What seems to work better is option SphericalRegion->True. The image remains the same size from its initial, static form through the rotation and beyond, after the mouse button is released.
