And I only had to write one line of code.
Oh, and the same 60+ image files loaded in around 1/20th of the time, and are currently consuming a mere 260K, instead of 100Mb+. Extraordinary" Read More Customer Feedback

|dbPix with Microsoft Access|
dbPix was designed to work seamlessly with Microsoft Access, allowing you to handle images efficiently and just as easily as other data types.
Getting started is as simple as placing a dbPix control on a form and choosing the data source. Functionality like scanner and camera integration, clipboard support and browsing the filesystem require just a single line of code, and adjusting a few properties can finely tune image processing and storage options. Reports are just as easy. For a detailed walkthrough see the 'Quick Start' topic in the dbPix Help file, or in the Online DocumentationdbPix offers several benefits to developers working with MS Access:
- Raw binary image storage; no headers or OLE Object overhead, resulting in compact, portable & lossless storage.
- Save images back to files without loss - no recompression or "generational loss".
- Use image data directly with other applications and tools, such as Visual Basic or Web Browser front-ends or other database back ends.
|dbPix with Web Browsers|
Image data stored with dbPix is easily published on a web server using a server-side scripting language, such as Active Server Pages (asp) on Internet Information Server (IIS) or Personal Web Server (PWS). This can increase the reach of your application across the intranet while reducing the installation and configuration effort.
You can extend this to support remote browser-based editing and updating of images, and integrate with administration front-ends built with Visual Basic, msaccess Forms, and other development tools.
|dbPix with Visual Basic|
Using dbPix with VB is as simple as binding a dbPix control to an adodc (ADO Data Control), or assigning the Image property with other recordset types.
dbPix stores raw binary data, so the images can be used with other tools and technologies, such as your web server, Access Forms user-interfaces etc.
You can finely tune how the image is stored to give optimum performance, image quality & detail.
