If you find a way to start the viewer from the operating system command prompt, run it from a form using HOST (or CLIENT_HOST) built-in.

thanks for you replay
1)i used this command to open the fax viewer its work fine but i found that in fax viewer user can delete,or using the paint and change the image , is theres any way to
disable the delete,and paint option.
2)i try to use oracle report and then open the image as pdf (my image is A4 size),its work but when i print the image its appear small , but from fax viewer its work ok.

I don't quite understand what you are saying, I'm afraid. Users are capable of reading those images and now you'd want to stop them from drawing mustache on someone's face? I'm not sure that you can do that, but what the heck - they still won't be able to save that image in the READ ONLY shared folder. Or, if they can, then folder isn't READ ONLY as you think it is.

How does the report output look like when you zoom it out (i.e. so that you see the full screen)? Does the image cover the whole A4 paper size? Is the report page size set to A4?
