the image control has a ('size mode property)  zoom to fit option.
presumably you aren't trying to resize the original image, just the form control?

What version of Office are you using?  I know there was a problem with images not displaying properly, I believe it was a 2016 issue, but I was under the impression it had been fixed.

If you are using the desktop version of Office, and not 365, is your version of Access up to date?

Check out DBPix:

They have been the go to company for image handling in Access for many years.   They do have a free trial download so you can try before you buy.
