Use exportgraphics to capture the image within your axes.

I wouldn't say "distorts", but if it behaves like print() or saveas(), then the output geometry will be a function of figure geometry instead of strictly being equal to the image geometry, (e.g. with any added padding, etc)
hi = imshow('peppers.png'); % [384 512]
% use print
print('useprint.png','-dpng')
S = imfinfo('useprint.png');
[S.Height S.Width]
ans = 1×2
656 874
% use saveas
saveas(gca,'usesaveas.png')
S = imfinfo('usesaveas.png');
[S.Height S.Width]
ans = 1×2
656 874
% use exportgraphics
saveas(hi,'useexpg.png') % try to use the image object itself
S = imfinfo('useexpg.png');
[S.Height S.Width]
ans = 1×2
656 874
I'm sure there are ways around this, but I don't see the point in pursuing the hazard if the source image was available in the first place.
