    Have tried a bmp file instead?

    Yes, it won't accept BMP files. It says that it needs tiff or pcx.

    A4 can view imaged that are in PCX and BMP formats. It can print PCX and TIF formats. The PCX format can be used for both viewing and printing.

    Even though your file is a BMP file, it's format may be causing a problem. I suggest that you open your file with either Paint or Imaging and then, save it it from there as a BMP file.

    Can you flatten the tiff file into a single strip file? There are various deviations of tiff files. It wants a simple tiff.

    I tried that and A4 won't accept a BMP it must be TIF or PCX.

    I think Gedi meant to say you should open it in your drawing/paint package, then save it as a PCX file.

    I use PCX files on labels with no problems.

    Thanks, I tried paint but it don't have "pcx" as a "save as" format. Maybe I can use my camera software and convert it.

    I don't have photoshop. I'll send it to my niece and let her do it. This is a pain. Need to convert to A5 I guess.

    Thanks

    What are the possible formats from your camera?

    Well, it will do jpeg and tiff. All I did was scan in a signature. I set my scanner to black and white. Matter of fact I tried it both ways and then took that file into paint and saved it several different ways. My niece took it into photoshop and flattened it and it still does the same thing. When I put the picture object into the report and point it to the signature file if I do an evaluate should it display the signature???? All it does is display the path and filename. My niece also sent me a "pcx" file and it printed out as a black box. Don't know what gives.

    Maybe tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Thanks for all your help. I finally took the file into u-lead software and saved it as a pcx file black and white and it liked that okay. Now I just have a few little background dots to get rid of. Anyway I appreciate all your help and I'm almost there.

    Merry Christmas
