Problems with images in report

Hi, I have a report that uses a column of type image in an sql server mdf file.

The report design shows this as a blobobject.

When I try to print the image it is either too small or if I drag to a larger size the image is of very bad quality.

The image data from the database field comes from an image jpeg file of 825 x 3100 pixels.

If I set the blobobject to this the print is tiny but if I drag to a bigger size it is not good at all?

Any tips please?

This is my first try at printing image data!

    Hi Paul,

    If you drag the picture more than it's size, it will loose its resolution. Try to keep the minimum size and go in File Report Options and click on Retain Original Image Color Depth.
