Hi ivylnm,
I see nothing difficult there:

procedure TForm1.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   Image1.Picture.Bitmap.LoadFromFile('D:\nwelcome.bmp');
end;

An alternative is

Image1.Picture.Bitmap := nil;

If you are looking to totally get rid of the image, then those are the solutions you want to try.  If, however, you are looking to just clear out the image, you can use the following code:

with Image1.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas do
begin
  Brush.Style := bsClear;
  Pen.Style := psClear;
  Rectangle(0, 0, Image.Width+1, Image.Height+1);
end;

If you would like it cleared to a particular color, you can change the Styles to Solid and add two extra lines:

  Brush.Color := clWhite;
  Pen.Color := clWhite;

or whatever color you want to use.

Hello, ivylnm!
I've got proposal with codes below. It's working just fine, believe me it was tested:
Image1.Picture.Bitmap.ReleaseHandle;
Sincerely, Fred
