Best Procedure for Image Handling

P: 16
I have a database made up of students' profiles. I would like the form to have an object that displays the student's picture. I used to use gifs and ole object fields, but I recently switched to Access 2003 and this is no longer an option. After much reading online, it seems like the best option is BLOBs.

Can someone give me a practical application of using BLOBs with Images?

I have this kb article as reference to blobs:

Check out these links, the first is "slow", but comes with sample databases.

Looks like the first link has some trouble at the moment, thus I've asked Alan Warren how to get to the page and he provided me with a working link:
