Display PSD graphic files in Access 2003

I can display jpg files but I can not display PSD graphic files.  Do I have to install a plug-in or add-on program?

You can install an activeX/ocx control to display PSD graphic files within Access.  Here are a few found by Googling "Image display ocx PSD":

You can store the path and name to the psd file and use an outside viewer to display it:  My favorite viewer is www.irfanview.com

You can convert the file to another format.  Irfanview will do that or
