You probably need to store a string in DRC[j][1] rather than an image object.

or you can do it the following way...

here is an example

            //init
            dataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap("test.bmp");            

            //bitmap to byte[] and to datatable
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
            bmp.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
            byte[] buf = ms.ToArray();
           
            //bind            
            dt.Columns.Add("Pic", typeof(Byte[]));
            dt.Rows.Add(buf);
            DataGridViewImageColumn cl = new DataGridViewImageColumn();
            cl.DataPropertyName = "Pic";
            dataGridView1.Columns.Add(cl);
            dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;

Try this one, Some improvement to Collindsouza's code...

dt5.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Availability", typeof(Byte[])));

if(available==false)
{
     img1.ImageUrl="green.gif";
     Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap("green.gif");
     System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
     Picture_Employee.Image.Save(ms, Picture_Employee.Image.RawFormat);
     byte[] arrImage = ms.GetBuffer;
     ms.Close();
     DRC[j][1]=arrImage;
}
