Insert a default picture, then right click on it and hit 'Format Graphic'
On the picture tab click the formula button by 'Graphic Location' and put the column name in there.
{tableName.logoColumn}

Can you parse the application path out of the file path for the report itself?

If so, the filepath of the report is available using the 'Filename' selection from the 'Document Properties' node in the Functions part of the formula workshop.
