How can i merge multiple images or files into 1 file so that when i need to use a file or image all i have to do is extract it when i need it?  I want to do this so that the files or images won't be loose and run the risk of a user accidentally deleting a necessary file.

Are these files static or will they be altered by your program?

You can embed images into your executable by putting them into a 'resource file'. Then the program can display them at runtime. However, the images cannot be edited after your program is compiled.

The files can be stored in a database and accessed through using Blob or Streams.  Choose carefully as using this method will increase the size of the database and more memory will be required as the image/picture/document has to run through an extraction process before displaying on the screen.

Sorry about the delay.  The files are static they won't be altered.  The sites Richie_Simonetti and vinnyd79 provided are what i needed in my program.  All the images together would be too large in size to include them in the exe file.  I would prefer to use a seperate file to hold the images.  Since both Richie_Simonetti and vinnyd79 provided very helpful information i will split the points in half and give them the points.  Thank you both for your assistance!
