In fact, I need something that works using VB.NET,
vb uses loadpicture, but I have not found something similar for .net

This question has been discussed before.  Rather than repeat everything please see this link to the previous thread:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Crystal_Reports/Q_20800061.html

It boils down to either using the RDC with .Net (link to whitepaper in above thread) or creating a dataset including the image and passing the dataset to the report.

Hope this helps,

Emre,

Make sure you include "http://" when pasting links - that way EE will automatically make them hypertext for you.

Just FYI
