Picture Resizing in Crystal Reports 10

Posted on 2006-05-31

I've looked around but haven't been able to find an exact solution to my problem...

I have images stored in BLOBs in a MS SQL db. I have a report that links to the databse displaying the images but they get stretched to the size of the image frame (2.5" square). The pictures are all differents sizes so I would like Crystal to resize the pics to fit in the 2.5" frame but maintain the original aspect ratio of the picture. Is this possible in Crystal Reports?

Thanks in advance,

    I haven't used pictures much but I believe you are stuck with the way Crystal is doing it.

    Is there a checkbox on the object to NOT RESIZE the image?

    No, the only checkbox that relates is the "Can Grow" box. If you check that box the image resizes to its original size from the DB (ironically with the correct aspect ratio) and distorts the form. So I guess I'm out of luck. Thanks anyway.
