I have looked at the properties of the pictures and the only detail given on
size is :-
Picture width = 5152 Pixels
Picture Height = 3864 Pixels
There are no picture ratios given in properties like 3:2 or 4:3 there are a few
other details but none relating to size. I think that I will try to crop or fill
the page or even increase the size of the picture to see what happens. Firstly I
will create a copy to work on as I don't want to lose the original
Many thanks for your input
