Image url

Any chance of making the image property work with a url?
For example if I wanted to store my images on Amazon or something similar rather than the internal server.
That way I can store shitloads of images without concern about drive space and also access images elsewhere if I have the need without requiring direct access to a specific drive on a specific network.

*** "shitloads" is a standardised unit of measurement ***

    As much as I would love to reinvent the wheel, the browser control can do this for you right now.

    If you create an OLE control on a form without a ProgID, then you get a browser control by default, which is the Explorer WebBrowser control. Call the Navigate2 method to pass in your image URL. Voila.
