    You can save a string (or an image) into one field, but the other program has to know about that field.

    You can SERIALIZE the image data, and store in one field, and the text in the other field.

    The only way to store images ( or any file for that matter ) into a database would be to use a Binary Reader / Writer. What concerns me is what database is the OP using?

    If it is Access 2007 or 2010, then there is an Attachment feature that can be used to save any sort of file into.

    Agreed on the binary reader/writer, this is what I use to store images in SQL Server. No reason it shouldn't work for any file type.

    Haven't used Access 2007+
