One more comment, Bill. I think that everyone on the list should download this
if they haven't already done so; because this is the first place I've ever
seen that gives you the exact size of a Picture. There have been many, many
instances in which I've had to measure Pictures and then convert to Pixels AND
hope I was close. Real Trial and Error Stuff. I'm sure there are a number of
items that will prove useful as well.

Thanks again,
