It's true that the Crystal Reports version included with VS 2003 can't load images from file paths. But can load from database image objects.
So, if i assume that you don't need all the images for the same document:
- you can store the paths in the database
- create a normally empty table with a picture id and a BLOB image column
- and if you need to export an image, you can load the images to the database temporarily, and use this temp table from crystal reports
- then clear the table
With this you can store the images outside the DB, and still use them in CR
