I'm running a report which uses the Image control to show multiple jpgs on a page (6 per page). The image control gets populated by pulling the path for the jpg from a table. The picture type is embedded and the size mode is zoom.

I'm wondering if there is a way to make the jpgs look sharper in the report. I've attached a pdf showing how the report looks.

JPG is a lossy format which means detail is lost.
A far better quality image is created if you use PNG or GIF files which are a similar size.
Or use BMP but the file size is much larger

I don't have the option of which format to pick for these jpgs. The jpgs are being used in multiple places including the company's website.

Then I suggest you reduce the size of the images on the report.
You cannot restore detail that has already been removed from the image

The client wants the jpgs the size that they currently are now in the report. And they want to be able to show six images on a page on the report.

Then they will have to accept that quality unless you can persuade the client to use higher resolution images in another format.

I had a feeling that would be my only option. There are over a thousands jpgs and there is most likely no way that the client will reshoot all of those images again.

At least you are able to explain to them how their choices impact the result. If they have to use jpgs, they have to accept both the benefits and costs of that decision.
