    Anybody knows how to implement/use GIF, BMP and JPG in one simple DLL (to reduce the .EXE size of the VB project)???
    Other methods are also welcome...

    I know this site, but my goal was how to implement graphics in a DLL (or something else), instead of linking them in 1 .EXE file.

    You can create a DLL which uses a resource file which contains the pictures.
    It will have to be an ActiveX DLL, unless you want to use Visual C++.

    Or, you can just include the resource file in your VB project.

    Okay, thanks Yona, I'll give it a try.
    I'm not that familiar with ActiveX DLL, but this could be a good starting point.
