I'm curious if anybody has experience with DBPix (http://www.ammara.com/dbpix/access.html) as an access add-on?

Should add I've never heard anything bad about it, but all good.

There is a free trial,  so i would give it try.

I have used DBPix multiple times. I also have two clients wherein it is part of a commercial Access Database application that has been selling for years.  It's  nothing short of fantastic. And this goes way back to the early 2000's. I am not aware of anything remotely close to it.

Once you've found a tool, why switch? I'm lazy and I have never used DBPix, and you have probably not used CsXImage. I used it for a custom document library. It worked very well, support is excellent, and where it really shines is when scanning is a part of the process.

However, for a later project where a lot of picture handling should take place, I realized that Access isn't really the perfect tool, so I turned to dotNet and Winforms where picture handling is native.
