Is it possible to insert a picture and make it into a circle or an oval or 
various other shapes than just squares and rectangles?  Thank you ahead of 
time.

Embedded pictures
Hello! I noticed that the when we set the picture property of a button or another control as embedded, it takes a lot of place. Is there an explication that show why the Access file encrease in size by more than the picture size (even if it is a bitmap, a format that is normaly heavy) Exemple: An mdb without picture would take 4 MB the same file with pictures would increase to 40 MB with only 400 KB of pictures. In JPEG format. Is it because Access uses a non efficient compression to include the image file? Thank you in advance for any suggestion! PS: I know that I can set the pictur...

attaching pictures as an icon
Hi I am trying to save memory in an excel report and I wish to include a picture in this report as an icon that shows the picture when selected. If you're going to try to save memory in the workbook, then it sounds like the big picture will be outside excel (a common LAN folder???). If yes, then maybe you could create thumbnails of each of your pictures (using ????) and then add a hyperlink to each thumbnail. The hyperlink would use whatever program is associated with the extension to open the big picture--outside of excel completely. (I don't know how you'd include the big p...

Resizing picture frame/picture problems
Hi Everyone! I am doing a layout for a pictorial directory in Microsoft Publisher 2003. I created picture frames the size that I wanted, and inserted my picture, using "change picture" in the drop down menu. However, when the picture appeared, it did not appear in the size that I made the frame. In fact, the frame reduced in size to fit the picture. How can I make the picture that I insert into an empty frame the same size of the frame without the frame resizing itself to the picture? Is there a better way?
