Does the physical (actual) size of the image really matter?? you can create an image box of a fixed size smaller than the actual image and then load the REAL image into it with the stretch property of the image box set to TRUE..have used this before and this works really well....

The size kinda did matter, because it was to create thumbnail files for web pages. I have got a solution, that saves the thumbnails as .bmps and I think that this is acceptable.

Thanks for you help.
