loading and scaling images

Hi,
An image was scanned in with TWAIN compliant engine and saved. It was
later saved in several formats namely: .bmp, .rle, .tif. I am using
LOADPICTURE function. The file is .bmp,  1.1meg size.
The file can be printed with word, wordperfect... without a hitch, but on VB5 the result is to big
or to small. I can't control the scale.

What am I doing wrong??

Thanking you in advance

Change the file extension to a WMF file, this will automatically resize the picture to fit into any Picture Box regardless of the size,that you put on a form.

How are you printing in VB5? Are you using the Printer object? If so, how about setting the picture property of an invisible Picture control and using the Printer.PaintPicture method. Using that and the Printer.Scalemode, I can usually do any kind of graphic needed.
