OleCreateFromFile() function for loading and after that you have to use an OLE interface from reachedit to insert it.

Thanks a lot for answer! I have tried (successfully) the method you suggest. The problem that remains unsolved is, how to handle pictures in other fileformats (.jpg,.gif, ...)!

You have to convert other file formats into the bitmap file format.

Thanks again! I've never done before this kind of fileformat conversions. Please give me a clue how and at which stage of the process (CreateFromFile->REOBJECT->InsertObject) to make the conversion.

The easiest way is to call a third party utility to convert the files before CreateFromFile. It is hard to find such a utility for free. But there must be some commerical products.
