How do you link an image from a DBImage component in Delphi 2007 to a Bitmap component in Rave Reports?

So, I have a database with a bit of information and an image for each entry.  I am trying to then print a Rave Report using that data.  All of the text fields are quite easy, but what I am having trouble with is displaying the image.  The bitmap component can be given an input property, but when I pass the picture on to the property that I declared previously, I get an incompatible data type error, as the property expects a string, not a TImage.

Basically, what I want is a line of code that looks like this

RvProject1.SetParam('Image', DBImage1.Picture);

but will actually work if I pass it a picture.  Or, some way of creating a parameter in Rave Reports that can be passed a picture.

I think what you're getting confused with is setting a bitmap's image by passing a parameter into rave with the address of the bitmap on the server or pc.
You create a parameter in rave,
you create an OnBeforePrint event for the Bitmap component and say
"MyBitmap.FileLink := RaveProject.GetParam('pMyReportImage');" //pMyReportImage is the name of the parameter
You then compile.
Then before executing your report in Delphi, you say (almost as you have said)
RvProject1.SetParam('pMyReportImage', C:\MyImage.bmp);

===

But if your images exist in a database, why not just set the DataView and DataField properties of the bitmap component in Rave?
Obviously you'll need a dataview set up - which you'll need for normal text fields anyway
