OLE Object in ACCESS 2007

I have a table in which I have added an image and I used the OLE object data type. I have a form in which a  user can double click the image field and the jpg image will display( in whatever default image viewer set up)... Anyway the problem with this is you can only see the image if you click on the image field on the form..Access 2007 has a new attachments datatype to replace OLE( OLE is still there obviously).. With the new attachments datatype you can attach jpg image.. The problem with this one is on the form you can't click and enlarge" the image like you can with OLE.. You have to make the image will large to see the details..
I would like the ability to see a small version of the image on the form and when the user clicks on the image it enlarges....
