Hi Joe,

No, this is not a limitation of the demo version but probably a limitation of the StretchDiBits windows API call.

I don't think much can be done about it. Windows 9X and ME may be more subject to the problem.

You can email a zipped bmp files you are having problems with and I will test it on my systems. michel@intervalsoftware.com

Best regards,
