Does it look OK on screen?
I am working with a database with 4400+ entries, each one including a
picture -- .gif
or .jpg depending on when it was entered.
Is the picture on the report? If so can you make a copy of the report and
remove the picture and see if that is affecting it?

Do you mean it has worked all this time and now is not working correctly? Or
is this a new report?
Make a copy of the report.
Open copy in design mode and remove things one at time checking after each
remove if it was causing the issue.
(Often I remove half the things first time, then if OK, remove other half,
etc to try and narrow it down.)
Sometimes one object can move a lot around...
