    <font face="Verdana">Hello,

    There are no export filters in ActiveReports to export to JPEG,BMP or COLD images. We have the Tiff export filter that can be used to export the reports to an tiff;but it may not retain the exact size. You could use the FaxExport and the FaxExportCITT3 methods to meet your requirements.The FaxExport exports the pages collection to a standard tiff file .Standard height for a fax compatible tiff is 1782 pixels by 2376 pixels. You could also use the ActiveReports FaxExportCITT3 method that exports the reports to RFC 1314 TIFF image file. The height of the tiff created through it should be the same as the report but the width is fixed to 1728 pixels.

    Ok, the client is close to production approval minus one issue so I ask is ther a way to increase the darkness programaticaly. Using the canvas or pages. Or is there another method? Any thoughts?

    You may try to change the backcolor of the control and the forecolor of the same to apply a brighter look to the text within the control.
