I would like all of the images I load into the Image Boxes to fill the box e.g. width = 100% and keep aspect-ratio??
"Stretching" the image causes distortion.

Are you setting the sizemode?

Yes.  It is set to zoom.  Stretch distorts the image.

Access isn't great at rendering images if you're resizing them. Consider the Image control a "preview" of the full image. If you want the image to look crisp and clean, the only other option then is to size the picture using your image editing software (Photoshop, et al.) and make it the exact size you want.

Thank you. That is what I suspected.  
The width of my image (Properties Sheet) is 3.45".  Would I then edit each image to that width?

Usually. I'd do one to see what it looks like. That's what Access is measuring the width of the control on the form as if you were to print it out (like in a report). It may not be exact. Trial and error is your best bet here.

Thank you Richard:  I am able to resize the images in Paint quite easily for my purposes.

Glad it works for you. :)  Access really isn't an graphics program. It can display simple images, but if you ask it to render a resized image, it doesn't look fantastic.
