Adding A Lot of Pictures to a Report

I created a Crystal Report (2016) that shows up to 30,000 items

and I want to display another column that has the pics for those items next to the item#. My pics reside on a directory on the server and are file-named based on the item# .

I need the actual pics to show up on the report, not links to them. Problem is my pics are not in the database, so I can’t just bring over a field that contains them. I'm assuming it would be a long complex process to bring my pics into the Mysql database. Not too mention it would use up another 20gb or more of space if I do it.

I've been looking at some other similar questions but they don't seem to match my issue exactly.

Anyone's help is sincerely appreciated!

    Set the Graphic Location property expression to the path & name of the image file.
