Although I am out of context with your question but I have not been storing images in the database as it is not considered a good and optimal solution. Read these following two links:

There are 2 options : BULK INSERT or TEXTCOPY.

With TEXTCOPY you have http://www.mssqlcity.com/Articles/KnowHow/Textcopy.htm
By the way, you should insert something into text/image column before copy text/image into it. I mean, this value should not be null. You should write (for example):
C:\>TextCopy /S SIDEVDESKTOP /D pubs /T pub_info /C Logo /F c:\sample.jpg /W "
WHERE pub_id=0736 " /I /U sa /P

Nevertheless, I would advise to do a BULK copy instead : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa173839(SQL.80).aspx
In the end the SQL query can be :
BULK INSERT pubs..bitmap FROM 'c:\test.doc'
WITH (
   FORMATFILE = 'c:\Bcp.fmt'
)

It is not because chkueh finally doesn't need any solution anymore that the issue itself is not valid for experts-exchange readers. Suddendly chkueh decides he doesn't want to "manually" insert the images into the DB then the answers have been worked and posted for nothing ?!
The question has been asked, the answers have been given and are valid, so they should be tagged as the solution. Just cancel it without any reason is not correct.
