Working on a New Access Seminar
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   11 years ago

I'm currently working on a new Microsoft Access Seminar that covers everything you ever wanted to know about working with images (pictures, graphics, etc.) in your Access databases. Some of the topics include:

- Storing images in your tables (pros and cons)
- Why GIFs and JPGs blow up the size of your database
- Linking to external images as OLE objects
- Storing only the path to an image but still displaying it
- Browsing and picking an image from your drives
- Displaying an image from a Web site in your forms/reports
- Launching MSPAINT to edit an image even if its not stored in your table
- Storing ONE copy of an image in a table (like a company logo) and using it on multiple forms/reports

I'm recording this seminar starting today. If you can think of ANYTHING ELSE that should be in this seminar, please let me know so I can add it. It will probably take me a day or two to record and edit it, so post your thoughts here.

Richard: I'm glad you tackled this topic. Please cover MS Access 2007 attachments.  Since in the Access course you said - during the we could have 5000 images. Since AC 2007 Attachments are NOT supposed to have the bloat that 2003 had this would be worthwhile.  Also, since the upcoming version 2010 is supposed to be more Web oriented this would help, too. Also, maybe something like little thumbnails of the pictures.  Would like to see graphics of the employees and products.
