    Maps (2003 allSPs)

    I am trying to insert maps into a database (Copy&paste). I have no control over the source nor size of these maps (from the CIA FactBook), though they wont vary enormously in size, more in aspect ratio. Is there a setting where I can have the form these are on automatically resize the picture frame but maintain the aspect ratio. Stretching works but throws the aspect ratio out and they end up either long and thin or short and fat. Clipping cuts off parts of the country, zooming leaves me with white space. I am not too fussy here, it just looks unprofessional if there is a bunch of white space around the diagram because I have guessed at the size of the biggest one and the current one is smaller
    TIA

    If you set the Back Style and Border Style properties of the image control to Transparent, the unused parts of the control will blend with the form.
