If you really need to have these exact dimensions but without any stretching you would need to crop (chop off part of the image, like the sides). In image scale leave the chain checked off, and enter in just one of the new dimensions (depending on the picture). Once it's resized you can use the Crop tool to make it exactly the size you need. For example set the Width to 242, which makes the height 161, then let it scale. Click the Crop&Resize tool (exacto knife icon) enter in 118 into the height box then using the bottom left or top right black squares move the cropping box where you want it then click Crop (or inside the cropping box). Of course you can fiddle with both image scale and cropping if it's better to chop a little off all sides.
