Access 2010 in 2003 mode - trying to embed pdf / bmp / jpg files in Reports and Forms

I'm attempting to display different types of images in Access reports and forms. It has proven very difficult to get them to display properly. Sometimes they are sized incorrectly, fonts are distorted, opens as multiple pages even though it is only one page. I've tried both unbound object frames and image controls. The ideal would be to embed a PDF file but the sizing is not the same as the pdf file. I've converted the pdf to a bmp and jpg file but those don't display properly either.

I found one youtube video suggesting to use a web browser control but I can't find that control. I assume I will have to convert the database to 2010 mode to use it. My client has systems with older versions of Access so I can't do that.

Any suggestions?
