  7. I have an Access 2003 ADP with a SQL Server 2008 R2 backend. My SQL Server instance is configured to use filestream. The control works well displaying and storing single images, but I need to store several pictures per item. So I have a picture table that has a foreign key relationship to my items table. I need to use a separate data source for the image than the main form and I need to be able to iterate thru all of the pictures for that item using the control. Is that possible?

    Reply
    • Yes, you can implement this using the subform for images, the same way you should do for any many-to-one data.

      Write me, if you need further instructions.

  8. in a property of the control, you see the word “custom” what can I do with that.

    Reply
    • Nothing special. You can invoke AccessImagine documentation and activation dialog, pressing […] here.

  9. can by this app capture photo from cam and save it in data base by direct order(bottom)

    • I don’t understand well your question. AccessImagine capture photos directly to database.

  11. Storage path option problem. It says it has to bound to txt or number type field not ole when storagepath activated, but then it says field is too small

    Reply
    • Usually it says “field is too small” when StoragePath is not specified. Please check, if you really specified it and send your failing database to max@bukrek.net for check.

  13. Tried to download AccessImagine but I am getting warning sign. I can not run or Install AccessImagine… I am running window 7 and Access2007…

  14. Hi… Does this version support x64 Office?

    Reply
    • Yep, it supports x64 (and 1.62 too). Can you describe your error message more?

  15. Given the auto install utility sample, (which is brilliant), are you going to provide a non version labelled deployment build so I dont have to keep updating my code as you update your build.

  16. seem to be having an issue with the rename method using this syntax:Private Sub Picture9_LostFocus()
    Pic.Rename (mypic.jpg)
    End Sub pics need to be renamed as they are in use in another software. i am using access 2010 ps. awesome program

    Reply
    • Error is: Variable not defined

      Reply
    • Try to use Pic.Rename “mypic.jpg”

      Reply
      • Still getting variable not defined “pic” is highlighted as the problem. the access imagine control is named Picture9 if that affects it at all?

        Reply
        • have fixed problem using this code
          Private Sub Picture9_LostFocus()
          Picture9.Rename [testurl]
          End Sub

          also found that you cannot rename a file using multiple fields as the new name but thats no biggie

          really great bit of software look forward to purchasing it on completion of this database

          Reply
          • Greetings, Chris!
            Yep, Pic is the name of AccessImagine object.

            You can avoid the need to rename images by binding AccessImagine to the field that is the source of filenames (like ID field).

  17. It says “When you run this download, few files are installed.” If I distribute a database using AccessImagine, will the other person be able to run the database or will they need to install AccessImagine as well?

    Reply
    • AccessImagine should be installed at every PC that uses your database. Deploy pack may be used for installing it.

  18. I am trying to use Access Imagine with Access as a front end and SQL Server as the backend through linked tables. The linked tables work and I can edit and save the fields but the Active X Access Imagine control is giving me issues. When add an image then try to go to the next record it says “Write Confilt: This record has been changed by another user since you started editing it…. ” It won’t let me save the change. When I change other fields, I doesn’t give me any of the same problems. Thanks for your help.

    Reply
    • There was no reports of such an error before. Try changing field type. Also, are you using ADP?

      Reply
      • I am using a linked table (ODBC Database linked to a SQL Server). I don’t think it is ADP. The field type in SQL server is varbinary(MAX). I have also tried the data type IMAGE. In the linked access table it shows up as an OLE Object.

        What type should I try?

        Reply
      • Figured it out. My table needed a timestamp.

        • That’s great you have found the solution!

  19. Hi Max,
    This ocx is very versatile, I have a database that I created using access imagine to trouble shoot faults on a production line, with the desc of faults and a photo attachment in continuous forms. Available to someone who would like to make use of it. Thanks Max great utility for access. :-)

  20. I have a tablet running Windows 8. I’d really like to be able to use the internal camera to take a photograph for each record in my database. Is this possible using this software? (My IT department has to install everything on our computers so I will need to convince them that this will work.)

    Reply
    • Was able to test it on our tablet without also installing on my laptop (crazy IT). However, is it possible to use the back camera rather than the front-facing camera to take photos?

      Reply
      • You need to perform right mouse click at Scan button to select source.

        Reply
      • Hi Sara,

        I have developed a database for use on a tablet that includes using the front or rear facing camera or a HD external camera. The software I used to compliment the Accessimagine ocx is called “YAWCAM” and is available free, if you would like a copy of my DB please ask.
        Kind regards

        Reply
        • Please tell more about YAWCAM and how you used it!

  22. When I display all records in database and there is an image field in those records, they display OK but when I click Next or Previous button to view another records, the Access Imagine Control auto resize smaller and smaller.
    Can you guys check it?

    • This is MS Access bug, remove border from AccessImagine control.

      Reply
      • What do you mean “remove border from Access Imagine control”, you mean set border style is transparent, right? Or which way?
        Can you tell me the details?

        Reply
        • You need to set Border Type: None (or something similar).

          Reply
  23. One more thing, Max Width and Max Height of this control doesn’t accept decimal value ex. 1.678 or 0.5,… I always round input value. Can you check it?

    Reply
    • It shouldn’t. MaxWidth and MaxHeight are in pixels.

      For example, if you set MaxWidth = 300, and image is 1024 pixels widht, it will be resampled down to 300 pixels (respecting the proportions).

      • OK. Got it now. Thank you so much :D

  25. Hello, is this support scanning document in PDF? I am interested to use this with my Document Management System.

  26. Can you have a property when set would allow the image to display across the full control similar in html/css background-size: cover;

    I have a report where the images are now all the same aspect ratio and makes the report look unprofessional.

  30. A couple of questions – is this compatible with Access 2016? Second question : I have an existing database with several thousand jpg images linked to several forms using the standard image control linked to a table with image file names. Since moving to Access 2016 I find it is not very good at recognising the correct image orientation. Images that display correctly in Explorer appear rotated when displayed via the image control. Will access imagine fix this?

    Reply
  31. i cannot install it without admin privileges.i don not have admin right.

    Reply
    • Yep, AccessImagine can’t be installed without admin rights.
      You need to contact your admin, if thats possible.

  32. I learned from another website that this product can display web pictures in Access. I binded the activex control (Control Source?) to the URL of a random graphic, but I still get the “No image” graphic. What did I do wrong?

    Reply
    • Maybe its HTTPS? AccessImagine is not able to display HTTPS images.

  33. i downloaded Access Imaging and viewed the Demo. In the demo i created a report from the existing table (Pics), but the images which appear in the “Pics Form” does not appear in the report i created. i have set the control source.

    Reply
    • That is strange, the pictures should be displayed in report too.
      More likely you have done something wrong, please check.

      Reply
      • Although the images can be viewed in the form, i’m not able to access the images from the Pics Table either. The cell containing the image in the Pics Table (pic column) says “Long binary data”.

        When i double click any of the cells which should have been containing the image then it give me a message “A problem occurred while Microsoft Access was communicating with the OLE server or ActiveX control.”

        I’m using MS Access 2013

        Reply
        • Yep, that is correct. MS Access is not able to display/operate that images without AccessImagine. What are you trying to do?

          Reply
          • I’m trying to capture an image from the PC camera directly into an Access Table (via an Access Form), so that i can print out an Access Report with the images listed.

          • i managed to get the results i wanted, my Access Report now displays the image from the demo in a list form.

            This is what i’ve done:
            1) I opened my Access Report in Design View
            2) I deleted all the Access Controls which was automatically inserted when i created my Report.
            3) I then inserted the Active Control (AccessImaginePicture Control)
            4) i switched my Access Report from Design View to Report View.

            Now, all the images are being displayed in a list in my Access Report. This is exactly what i was trying to achieve.

            Thanks for all your help this far, Access Imagine is an awesome ActiveX control.

  34. Hi,

    I have developed an MS-Access 2010 database and I use AccessImagine in it, whereby one of the fields in a form captures images via a Microsoft LifeCam HD USB camera.

    It all works fine, in general, with the following exception. Sometime clicking the image field to capture an image doesn’t work – it says camera unavailable. Statistically, for 150 images captured on a typical day, this happens once or twice. It is only after exiting the MS-Access application and restarting it that things work again.

    I picked my brain and did all the troubleshooting I can think of but can’t find why this happens. I checked that the camera driver is up to date. Any idea? Any suggestion I can try?

    Thanks.

  40. Hi, maybe this is an obvious one but, would you mind describing differences among deploy pack, executable and MSI installer? When is it better to use one or the other?

    Reply
    • Sure. Usual installer is for devs, it shows EULA, creates start menu links and installs demo database.

      Deploy pack doesn’t show or ask anything, and installs AccessImagine ActiveX only. MSI is for admins that need MSI for automated mass-deploy (but it doesn’t include 64-bit OCX, as MSI is unable to handle that).
