Displaying images on Access 2016 Report

I'm having problems displaying images on an MS Access 2016 report (in all views). It displays only some of the linked images, then some of them are missing (even though they are prensent in the same directory). I've checked the file sizes to see if that might be the problem - the same problem persists even when I resize the images that I'm having trouble with.
Any suggestions on how to solve this? Have a nice day.

There was a bug in 2016 that has been fixed directly related to this.
Do you for sure have the latest Office 2016 updates?  The problem actually originated in Office - and affected most Office products, including Access.
There seems to be an issue with the memory used per page in the report. If the images exceed a certain size (in bits) only some are displayed. So I managed to tweek the report so almost all of the images were displayed.
