    Based on your question description, I understand that you are storing Images in byte format in database table. If this is correct then Please refer to these step by step articles that demonstrate how you can display images from database table by having a DataColumn in DataSet with DataType as System.Byte[]

    1. Crystal Reports Display Images From Database Asp.Net
    2. Display image from database in Crystal Report in ASP.Net using C# and VB.Net

    Hi  bearamzz

    The text object is used to display text, database fields, and special report fields. Each text object can display one of these or a combination of all three.
    The purpose of following links:

    1. show how you to upload and save images directly in a SQL Server database table as binary data and display in Crystal Reports.

    2. Show how you to store images in a folder and display in Crystal Reports.



    if you just want to insert image binary to text object. You could refer to the steps below to learn how to combine database fields in a text object

    1. Create a text box and size it big enough to hold both db fields.

    2. Insert both fields initially in the report footer field temporarily.

    3. drag the first field into the text box. You should now see the db
    field name {field1}  inside the text box.
