Youy need to use streams for this. You have to do someting like this:

var
  s : TFileStream;
begin
  s := TFileStream.Create ('thefile', fmCreate);
  try
    s.WriteComponent (Label1);
    s.WriteComponent (Image1);
  finally
    s.Free;
  end;
end;

for read the components simply do:

var
  s : TFileStream;
begin
  s := TFileStream.Create ('thefile', fmOpenRead);
  try
    s.ReadComponent (Label1);
    s.ReadComponent (Image1);
  finally
    s.Free;
  end;
end;

the code above will work if the Label1 and Image1 are created, if not the you should assignt the value of ReadComponent to it and pass a nil parameter to readcomponent, something like this:

Label1 := s.ReadComponent (nil);

that line created in component, as contrary to

s.ReadComponent (Label1)

that load the contents of the label stored in the stream in the label already create.

Is important to make you note that in order to make this work you have to register the clases TLabel and TImage first. This ciuld be dont in the OnCreate event handler of your main form, or in the initialization part of some unit.

The code to register the classes is:

RegisterClass (TLabel);
REgisterclass (TImage);

If you have some problem with the registerclass method could be because you have the Windows unit declared after than the Classes unit. In such case write:

Classes.RegisterClass (TLabel);
Classes.Registerclass (TImage);

That should work.
