Adding an image to a form

Dear Experts,
I have created a simple employee database using Access 2007, and would like to be aboe to add photo field.
The problem is, I can add the image to the table, and be able to display, but do not know a simple way to be able to add photo from the form.
The samples I found tells me to use Attachment control, but I am not sure how to use it.
Is there a way for the user (which will not be me) to simply add a new record using a form, then insert the photo for that record on the same form, without having to edit the table?

Please advise.

Another benefit is that you can also save the file back "Out" (Save As)
