Image BLOB

P: 16
I'm fairly new to Access, however I have decent experience with a variety of programming languages. I created a database for students profiles at my company. The profiles contain various data, plus the student's picture. I did this with Access 2002, and saved the pictures as gifs, and added them as OLE objects.

Now I have upgraded to Access 2003, and I can no longer add pictures this way. I have looked into it and realized that the MS photo editor is no longer installed with Access 2003, and that the best way to use images is with BLOB.

I would like to take small jpegs of the students and add them to the database using BLOB. Can someone give me a point in the right direction, I've seen barely anything on this topic.

Thanks! btw, first post!
