    I want to have images displayed on an Access 2000 form. Even linked objects
    cause the database size to increase very quickly.

    The database bloating you are experiencing is explained in the
    following-referenced material.

    The sample imaging databases at http://accdevel.tripod.com illustrate three
    approaches to handling images in Access, and the download includes an
    article discussing considerations in choosing an approach. Two of the
    approaches do not use OLE Objects and, thus, avoid the database bloat, and
    some other problems, associated with images in OLE Objects.

    If you are printing the images in reports, to avoid memory leakage, you
    should also see MVP Stephen Lebans' http://www.lebans.com/printfailures.htm.
    PrintFailure.zip is an Access97 MDB containing a report that fails during
    the Access formatting process prior to being spooled to the Printer Driver.
    This MDB also contains code showing how to convert the contents of the Image
    control to a Bitmap file prior to printing. This helps alleviate the "Out of
    Memory" error that can popup when printing image intensive reports.
