VS2010 and Crystal Reports Loading Image at runtime

Previously when using VB6 and Crystal Reports I was able to specify the contents of an image at runtime.  This allowed the invoicing app to use the customers letterhead loaded from a jpg on their pc.  I need to be able to achieve the same thing in VB.NET and Crystal Reports (VS2010) but it seems that I have to specify the image at design time rather than runtime.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
