Is it the page setting issue if so how to set?

Crystal uses  the default printer driver to render the report even if you aren't printing.  Most printers have a default margin that cannot be made smaller.  Quite often .175 to .25 inches.

Set the report to NO PRINTER in the printer/page setup
You can then set the margins to 0

That should do what you want.

I don't know how Crystal handles images in the latest version but older versions would convert the image to a bmp for displaying.

There are some issues with image quality in some versions that are solved with a service pack.

For the image quality, go to File > "Report Options" and if you have a "Retain Original Image Color Depth" option, make sure it's checked.  Also, I think if CR has to resize the images, it may be losing some quality there.  You could try making sure that the image is already the correct size, if possible.

Yes, that helps in suppressing the White border.

Thanks mlmcc
