Images quality in Reports

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am trying to print a report with an image in it. The image source is
input via a text field on a form, and then the report is loaded.

The problem is, the images are not of any quality, just blocky, how can
I increase the quality of these images on the reports without using a
Bound Object Frame?

I have tried using an Image and Unbound Object Frame, are there any
settings I am overlooking?!?

Thanks in advance.

Alec

Alec I'm just heading out for the golf course so I don't have time to
type a detailed explanation. If you search on GoogleGroups for this
threads subject plus my last name you will find several threads
discussing your issue in detail.

Ok,

That kinda helped, i get a clear image, but its not the correct size...
the .tif files are stored as A4 size, so when printed from an image
program come out as a full page, but when the images are in the report,
they are nearly 50% of the size. I really want them as just under A4
size, so want to enlarge the image object. Is there any way of doing
this without installing your dll/using your extremely large function?

Thanks.

You did not look at the correct threads that have to deal with
resolution, sizing the Image ocntrol and setting the SizeMode property.

Hi Stephen,

Unfortunaly I have already tried the Zoom option, that is what causes
the image to be of poor quality when enlarged. I presume that my only
option now is more dll's.

Thanks for the tips tho.

Alex are you using a standard Image control or an OLE Frame control?
What type of images are you loading?

Stephen,

I can use either, at present I will use anything that gives me a full A4
size good quality image. I can work with either.

With an Image control, unless your source Image is a high resolution
full A4 size Image you will continually run into final output quality
issues. Access's internal resizing method is fast but sacrifices
quality. There is code on my site that can perform a very high
quality(but slow) resize.

With an OLE Frame control, the quality of the resizing is dependant on
the Image application that is serving as the OLE Server.

In both cases, output quality will be relatively poor if you are sizing
upwards from a low resolution source image.

Stephen,

Ok, I'll have to look into it, just as an extra, is it possible to Print
an OLE object using VB/VBA code? As you can right click the object and
click Print, is this possible with VB?

Thanks,
