Trying to insert a simple bmp and or Jpeg have both for the same image and logo. I am trying to get this in a MS Access Form and a Report and when I do instead of resizing the object to fit it into a portion of the page it seems to crop it and I get the center of the logo with 80% chopped off yet I am not in a crop mode. How do I get this to shrink into the spot I want it to go into.

    Also ... see this:  DBPix ...

    I can totally vouch for this program.  

    It does all the work for you. Examples show how to add a simple 'control' panel to Load, Save, Zoom In/Out, Size To Fit and much more.  AND ... virtually eliminates BLOAT associated with storing images in an Access MDB.

    Note. I have no connection with DBPix ... except I have used it many times ...

    Back to my first post ... the Image has a property called Size Mode on the Format tab of the property sheet.  It has 3 settings ... Clip (default), Stretch and Zoom.  

    Adjust as necessary ...
