It depends on the aspect ratio. If it is a square object then it should scale up evenly. But if it is a rectangle then eventually a large enough scale factor will make it looked stretch on the longer sides.

A transformation that proportionally reduces or enlarges a figure?

Scaling will proportionally reduce or enlarge a figure. The amount of scaling is given by the scale factor (greater than zero) If the scale factor is less than 1, the figure is reduced and it is sometimes called a contraction If the scale factor is greater than 1, the figure is enlarged, and it is called a dilation or enlargement. If a centre of enlargement is used, the distance of every point from the centre is multiplied by the scale factor. The scale factor can be negative in which case the distance to the new point is measured on the opposite side of the centre to the original point.
