There may be times when you want to add an unbound picture
(such as your company logo or product image) to your Microsoft Access form. It’s
easy to add pictures to forms with the Image control. However, an embedded form
object can take up a huge amount of space in your database.
To save space, try linking the image to the form, rather
than embedding it. Here’s how to link a picture to your form:
the form in design mode.
the Image button in the toolbox.
and drag to insert the image on the form.
to the image file containing the picture you want to link to, select it,
and click the OK button.
the image and select Properties.
the Picture Type drop-down arrow and select Linked.
Note that the image file must be available in the Samples
folder when the form is running; otherwise, the image will not be displayed.
