I put all my graphics into a DLL (called res.dll) so that my program's filesize would be reduced. I loaded the graphics into the My.Resources area of the DLL. I need to know how to retrieve those graphics and apply them to the toolbar images, as in tlsNew.Image = !!corresponding DLL graphic!!. Thanks to those of you that are rolling your eyes and muttering 'newb'. I know. Or maybe this is advanced. I don't know, I do know that IE uses this technique, so it's possible.
