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?
