 Solution
I've tried many sites and many solutions but I've never figured out the error pattern, or why does Crystal Reports not letting me insert any photo of any kind (JPEG, JPG, PNG) or resolutions. But I landed on this solution and it is working fine with me, and it seems the only solution I've now :
1) Right-click on the report while in the design
2) Choose Insert, then choose Picture
3) Single Left-click the on the photo you wish to insert
4) Click Open, you will notice the image box appears on the report
5) Place the Image box any where on the report and you will see it there.
- I used to double-click the image in the Dialog Box where I choose the Image but that did not work with me, now when I use 'Open', it is working 'Silly'

 But, to do this programmatically using code in VB 2010, you notice you always get "Logon Failed" Error message, using something like this :

And you get this error message :

After many trials and tests, I've found out the only solution for this problem is to connect dynamically to Crystal Reports in VB 2010 using code is through the DataSet and DataTable Objects, here is the code to accomplish this :

- Delete Data from Database Table
- Connect Crystal Report with VB 2010 and MS-Access protected Database Programmatically
