Follow the instructions at the following website:;en-us;303066.

The one thing that you will want to change though, is to set Text1 in the code to an Image control on your form. You'll need to remove the path in the Picture property for the image first.

The replacement code for the Text will be:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.Image1.Picture = LaunchCD(Me)

I've created an Attachment for you which will:
  1. Open the Microsoft Office File Dialog
  2. Allow you to navigate then select any *.bmp, *.jpg, or *.gif File
  3. Display the Selected File in an Image Control
