In the upper left hand corner of all of my Crystal reports I have the company logo.  The object that holds th elog is defined as a 'Picture'.  As I design each report I load the default graphic into the Picture object.  The default graphic was designed to fit into the area defined for the picture.  it is the correct resolution and size to fit perfectly without any manipulation.

Now we want to provide theusers of the app with tha ability to load thier own grahic to appear in the upper right hand corner of every report.  We have provided a screen where they can select the grahic that they want.  We also revised each of the pertinent reports to accept the grahic location and name as a parameter.

This all works fine except for the fact that the graphics selected by the user were not designed to fit exactly into the area defined for the picture on the report.  I turned off the 'Can Grow' property of the picture because large grahics were overlayin the report contents.

I noticed that their are several properties on the picture object that I don't know anything about but may help with getting non-standard grahics to adapt to the size of the defined picture object.  I see 'Top Cropping', 'Bottom Cropping', 'Left Cropping' and 'Right Cropping' which look promising.

Question:  How I can I define the Picture object so that each graphic adapts to fit into the size of the defined picture object?  

In case this is important, I am passing the graphic to the Crystal report from VB6.0.
