Can someone give me some code to load a JPEG from a resource file and display it in vb (and of course how to store it in there).  Can't save it as a bitmap and loading it as a custom resource doesn't seem to work either.

You might just want to convert the BMP files to JPG first.  Try this program at this site: http://www.fcoder.com/ftp/Converter.zip 
It works great at converting graphics to different formats.  Let me know how it works, or if I have not helped you.  --Vingamel

The size after the conversion would be WAAYYYYYYYYY too big.  Basically I want to keep the file size small otherwise I would have used bmps from the start

what I'm thinking of is storing it in a resource file as a custom resource.. pull the data out of there and display it.

object.picture = loadpicture(source)

when you are ready to save this picture and any changes use

savepicture object.picture,filename 'will use the same format you started with

savepicture object.image,filename 'will convert to bmp
