read_image_file issue resizing when format=>url

I'm migrating from 6i

I have some images to display, let's say logos and such, which in c/s I loaded with read_image_file into an image_item.


Now, in the 11g version, I've put all that logos in a jar, as the read_image_file is now relative to the weblogic server, not the forms client.


So, I'm changing this code:


Read_Image_File ('H:\mypath\logos\mylogo.tif', 'TIFF', 'block.image_item1');


by this:


synchronize;     -- now this is neccesary

Read_image_file (file_name => 'aenor.gif', file_type => 'url', item_name => 'BLOQUE.LOGO1');


after converting my logo to gif and putting it inside a jar (which I load properly in formsweb.cfg).


The problem:

I see the image, but,

If I set sizing style property to adjust, the image appears very tiny inside the image_item .


If I set that property to crop, the image crops as expected (the gif is bigger than the item).


Any hint or workaround (other than resizing the gif)?
