Photo is squished or stretched in Crystal format

Hi folks,

One of the standard Crystal formats available as a profile report (a.k.a. yellow button report) is the biographical summary with photo.

It is creating a PDF as it should, but the photo is either squished or stretched to fit the space.  Crystal is finding the photo but then distorting it.

If you know how to get Crystal to display the photo correctly, please respond!  I'm editing in Crystal Reports 2013 support pack 4, and we have Mill 2016.1.2 SQL. 

I feel like most of my questions on this forum are about Crystal!

Thanks,

Fixed!  Inside the photo subreport, on the image itself, in Format Editor, on the Common tab, you have to uncheck "Lock Position and Size" and also check "Can Grow".  Sure, it seems so simple now.

Thank you!
