If you are using CR XI or higher, you can insert a picture (or new OLE bitmap), then right-click on the picture, click "Format Graphic", then "Picture", then click "X-2" next to "Graphic Location". Put the URL field in there.

Has that worked for you? I can't seem to get URLs, BMPs, PNGs, TIFs or GIFs to work with that. The only thing that works (and well) is a JPG against a windows location (local or network). That is ok for my desktop, but the Crystal Server runs on a form of Unix and I am trying to reuse images whereever possible and many are GIFs

I am using Crystal Reports 2008 v 12.2.5.537.

Any ideas other than storing them in the database as BLOBs?
