Tried everything Wim, you have to draw the box before you insert the photo
as you know and GB does not honour the transparent background. Tried to cut
and paste it directly onto the chart and it caused an illegal operation and
shut down of the program. I've doctored the photo to a square and
fortunately the customer has accepted it.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,
