How to show a web linked image on a report

I need to  have an ms/access report that shows a number of image files associated to a specific recordo. In the record fields I do have the exact link to the image. On Forms, I can use the web browser in it shows correctly, except for scale and rotation. But, on Reports we do not have the web browser.

I thought that, by using the "Image"  I could do it and using the field name as a control source. But no. It will always show the initial image I have used when designing the form.
can anyone help?
