With TRichEdit it is quite difficult. Look at the PrintPreview control on this page:
http://www.radix.net/~bziegler/Delphi/ 
it has full source included and has a function that renders the contents of a TRichEdit onto a canvas. Just provide a bitmap canvas instead, that'S it.

Hello Duke. Is this what you need???

I've used the Button's OnClick() event...
-----------
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  DC : hDC;
begin
  DC := GetDC(RichEdit1.Handle);
  BitBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Width, Height, DC,0,0, SRCCOPY);
  ReleaseDC(RichEdit1.Handle, DC);
end;
----------

thanks! this is really good'n'simple solution , but it works only one time-the first time I press the button. If I make changes to the richedit and press the button again, it does not update the image
thanks

I just don't know what to do with this TPreviewPrinter component.
First I assin to it richedit1.text. Then I should assign the contents of Previewprinter1 to Image1. How? What is the property that represents contents of TpreviewPrinter(like Picture.bitmap in Timage case)?

Ok, then ..here is the new code that updates it every time you press the button
---------
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
       DC : hDC;
     begin
       Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color := Color;
       Image1.Canvas.FillRect(Image1.Canvas.ClipRect);
       DC := GetDC(RichEdit1.Handle);
       BitBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Width, Height, DC,0,0, SRCCOPY);
       ReleaseDC(RichEdit1.Handle, DC);
     end;
