Here is a sample application at PSC that will do what you want I believe.  Paste this url in the browser.

SavePicture will help but for save to file in disk.
You could try this excellent code which manages pictures in memory and you could save them in bynary field in db.

Yes, you can save the picture in the picturebox out using the SavePicture function, and then you can add it into a database using the ADO stream object.  Assuming that you have ADO checked in the Project|References you can use this code (originally posed by Anthony - aperkins)

Sub AddImage(rs As ADODB.Recordset, ByVal FileName As String)
Dim stm As ADODB.Stream

Set stm = New ADODB.Stream
With stm
 .Type = adTypeBinary
 .Open
 .LoadFromFile FileName
 
 'Add a new record
 rs.AddNew
 'Stream the value into the field through the stream object
 rs.Fields("ImageColumn").Value = .Read
 'Update the recordset
 rs.Update
 .Close
End With
Set stm = Nothing

End Sub

You could call this function as follows:

Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
With rs
  .Source = "Select * From Table1"
' you can do the same thing with an Ole column in Access
  .ActiveConnection = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;User ID=userid;Initial Catalog=database;Data Source=sqlserver"
  .CursorType = adOpenDynamic
  .LockType = adLockOptimistic
  .Open
  AddImage rs, "c:\winnt\compaq.bmp"
  .Close
End With
Set rs = Nothing

End Sub

Best not to save images to a database, why not save images to disk and simply record the image path/name into a field?

Concerning your "reply" to my "comment". I didn't post a "answer" just wanted to "warn" you that saving images to a database table is not a very wise idea, even MS$ says so.

Do what you feel is right for you, but be forewarned.
