Go Up to Loading and Saving Graphics Files

Your application should provide the ability to load a picture from a file if your application needs to modify the picture or if you want to store the picture outside the application so a person or another application can modify the picture.

To load a graphics file into an image control, call the LoadFromFile method of the image control's Picture object.

The following code gets a file name from an open picture file dialog box, and then loads that file into an image control named Image:

procedure TForm1.Open1Click(Sender: TObject);
  if OpenPictureDialog1.Execute then
    CurrentFile := OpenPictureDialog1.FileName;
void __fastcall TForm1::Open1Click(TObject *Sender) {
    if (OpenPictureDialog1->Execute()) {
        CurrentFile = OpenPictureDialog1->FileName;
