Hi Gregg,

You need to create a new image, and copy the smaller one into it.

For example,

NewGraphic := TDibGraphic.Create;
NewGraphic.NewImage( ... )
NewGraphic.Canvas.Draw( X, Y, SmallerGraphic );
ImageScrollBox.Graphic := NewGraphic;
ImageScrollBox.Redraw(True);
NewGraphic.Free;

Best regards,

Michel
