EMF image quality is poor after you load the image into Crystal

We are using an old version of Crystal( to generate a PDF report by converting EMF images.

It is noticed that EMF image quality is very poor after you load the image into Crystal.

I am wondering that: if we upgrade the Crystal version, can this problem be fixed?

    Can you expand a bit more on:

    "...generate a PDF report by converting EMF images."

    Do you mean you add the image into the report and then see a quality degradation on export to PDF?

    If so, what about an export to MS Word?

    I don't know if later versions will do a better job, but the place to star is with updating your install top SP6 as you are on SP 3. See this blog on how to.

    Other than that, there is an eval version of CR 2008 available here:

    And an eval of CR 2011 available from here:

    • Crystal Reports never was and is not particularly efficient at rendering images. If my suggestions re. updates on October 26 did not help, then your only option is to put a request into the SAP Idea Place and ask for better image rendering capabilities.

      Oh, one more thing. There is also an option in CR; Retain original image depth. See if that helps.
