Yes, that's the way it is supposed to work.  When images are uploaded to SL, they are automatically re-dimensioned to match the closest "power of 2" sizes.  All images in SL have sides that are 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024 pixels.  If you upload an image that is 700 x 512, it will be converted automatically to 512 x 512 pixels.  If you want your displayed image in SL to have the same aspect ratio as your original, you should compress it in Photoshop or GIMP before you upload it and then stretch it to fit an appropriate prim face in world.
