"please help me" is not a topic, it is a request. It is assumed that when you post a question you need help... The purpose of the topic is to give an idea of the nature of your question, such as "Saving images in Access Under Visual Studio 2005."

It is also expected that the answer to your question will be posted [u]here</u>, rather than sent to your private email, so that when others have a similar problem, they can find your post through a search (another reason to use a meaningful topic).

Inasmuch as this is a professional forum, rather than a chat room, it is wise to use proper capitalization, punctuation, etc. (Your punctuation is fine; I include that because some try to post the kind of post you would expect from Jack Kerouac, with no punctuation at all...) that makes your post easier to read, and lends it a layer of seriousness that can be to your advantage.

The best way to interact with images & a database (for speed, and so on), is to place the images in the file system, and put a reference to them (their path and file name) in the database.

But Access does have the OLE object field type that might be useful for you if you absolutely must store the actual binary data in the database. This can be a somewhat twitchy field type to work with though. You have to give it just what it expects, and so on.
