Default Displaying images in gridview using code

The code below is used to get data from a database and displays it in a gridview. the last column l_image displays for example picture1.jpg text. Using code how can I change that to appear as a picture ? Thanks

Code:
        Dim da As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM lettings", myConnection)
        ' create a new dataset

        Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet
        ' fill dataset

        da.Fill(ds, "lettings")
        ' Attach DataSet to DataGrid

        GridView1.DataSource = ds
        GridView1.DataBind()

Well, of course you can't change string "picture1.jpg" to an image. You need to have the image data somewhere. So the question is, where does the actual image come from?

The Image path needs to either be stored relative to the site itself (i.e. "~/images/lettings/picture1.jpg") you can then simply set the ImageURL property of the Image Web Control. Done :)
