Welcome to the forum.
It sounds like you are pasting the image in layout mode (which could enlarge the body part), then resizing it to what you want.
Have you considered using a container field instead? Size the container field to the size appropriate to your layout, then insert the cover art into the container field...this won't change the container field's size on your layout and you shouldn't have the resizing issue you speak of.
When your layout design is done, simply send the container field to the back so that your text will print on top of it and be visible.
Is this what you are after?
I did try to use the container field but the image inside the container field only shows up in the Header in Preview mode. This is strange because in Layout mode I resized the container field so that the container field encompasses the header, body, and footer parts but the image only appears in the header and then gets cut off at the Body part. I resized the image to 8.5" by 11" inches before I pasted it inside the container field. Filemaker Pro doesn't seem to handle graphic images very well in Layout mode.

The Body part lists the songs on the music survey...
Are you in List View ?
Actually I am in Preview Mode viewing "View as List".
1) Create a Trailing Grand Summary part
2) Make it with an height of about the size of your screen
3) The image must start from 1 pixel OVER the Header and stop to the end of that new part
From now on, you'll have an image in your list view.
What the heck!! Your suggestion worked! I tried on and off for almost a week trying to get the album artwork to fill up the entire layout. In a million years I never would have guessed the Trailing Grand Summary part was the key.
Danielle THANK YOU so much for the help!! Because of you I, I decided to buy Filemaker Pro.
Thanks again and have a great day!
