Which engine? How exactly do you include the figures (sample code)?

In general you should not trust that the figures will come out in the
proper size unless you specify the size explicitely.

The only problem I had with some jpg images (generated by my photo
camera) was some time ago with XeTeX (xetex calculated the resolution
in one way and xdvipdfmx in some other, and because of the mismatch
the final scaling was wrong). That problem still exists in TeX Live
(it has been fixed recently), but it's impossible to tell anything
more specific unless unless provide more details. (Although not
impossible, it seems unlikely to me that you switched from XeTeX in
MikTeX, so it must be something else.)
