I want to print jpeg's to a report, combined with other fields from a database. I use LoadPicture to get the jpeg's in the form (the name of the jpeg-file is in the database), but can't get them to the printer, Crystal won't do it and other add-ons I know don't either. Any suggestions?

Could use the Printer.PaintPicture method.

If you store the Jpeg as an OLE object(which will convert it to BMP) you can then use Crystal Reports to print them.  Or you can can print them yourself.  Like this:

picture1.picture = loadpicture(app.path & "\whatever.jpg")
printer.paintpicture picture1.picture,yourx, youry

This method will take up a lot of space, as the database will convert it to bmp. With bmp's it is fairly easy to print, but the challenge is the jpeg.
