Dynamically embed image into Crystal Report that is stored in ABAP Dictionary as RAWSTRING

Using SAP Crystal Reports for Enterprise 2016 I need to dynamically embed images that have been uploaded from our business server page application and stored in a database table using data type RAWSTRING.

Apparently data type RAWSTRING is not supported by Information Design tool as it will be declared as LONGTEXT and not as BLOB (binary).

I tried to convert the RAWSTRING in ABAP using function module SCMS_XSTRING_TO_BINARY receiving a table with line type RAW. In Information Design Tool the table field is displayed as BLOB so apperently RAW is supported.

When using the table in Crystal it will only display a small part of the image (the first line of the binary table), the rest is all blank (blank pages). How can I display the whole table as one single image? Or is there a way to convert the binary table to one binary string?

Thanks and best regards,
