This article gives further details and a working example database of displaying images in the form, that will change for each record.
As per the previous example, we will be storing a path to the image location, we won't be actually storing the image in the database. It is not a good idea to store the image file in the database itself or you will very quickly suffer from database bloat. A better approach is to store the images in a dedicated folder and then simply enter the filename/path to the file in the database.
Our example file is based upon Property Details that we would store in something like an Estate Agents/Real Estate database system. More detail...
