Resize jpg to fit pdf page?

I am able to drag a jpg file to the PDF Print Monitor, and to then print it as pdf.  But PDFCreator isn't properly fitting the image to the page; I'm getting a small portion of the image on the pdf page and most of the image outside the page margins. 

I can open the jpg in, for example, Irfanview, and then print to PDFCreator while having Irfanview scale the image to fit the page, but if possible I'd like to skip the Irfanview step and let PDFCreator do the resizing.  Is it possible?
