If you're using the RDC components then you can do this by setting the mode to "auto-size".  See more details here: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2003171.asp

If you're just pulling in a picture from a database then AFAIK there isn't a way to do this.

in vb.net with a small application you can reference the picture object and resize it programatically

Code:
CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.PictureObject picobject;
picobject.ObjectFormat.EnableCanGrow = true
picobject.height = xx
picobject.top = xx
picobject.width = xx
picobject.left = xx

If you need more help let me know

i've solved the prob. with my own style..:D

Dim thePicture As Object
Dim xRatio As Single, yRatio As Single

Set thePicture = LoadPicture("c:\windows\desktop\yahoo.bmp")

'calculate the ratio
xRatio = Picture1.Width / thePicture.Width
yRatio = Picture1.Height / thePicture.Height

'use the smallest ratio value to resize the original picture
If xRatio < yRatio Then
     Picture1.Width = CLng(thePicture.Width * xRatio)
     Picture1.Height = CLng(thePicture.Height * xRatio)
Else
    Picture1.Height = CLng(thePicture.Height * yRatio)
    Picture1.Width = CLng(thePicture.Width * yRatio)
End If

Set Picture1.FormattedPicture = LoadPicture("c:\temp\myPicture.bmp")
