Access Photo Image Database

Hey Guys

After doing countless hours of design for an access image database for
roughly 5000 images and climbing. I wanted to include a thumbnail of each in
the database so that anyone could view each record and see a thumbnail of the
image. I am seeing here that this would blow out my size of database to a
ridiculous size. Is there any way around this, that i could still apply a
thumbnail to each record whilst keeping down the database size?

Hi Silver76,

Yes, the way is to have a text field that stores the path/filename for the
thumbnail and/or image, and store THAT in your database. Then have a form
with an image control on it, and when the record changes, set the Image to be
the path/filename from the table.

Hope this helps.

Damian.
