I have a picture box on SSRS. I want to load a picture to it, for exam from
D:\Pictures\TV1.jpg (actually user will decide it by using OpenFileDialog)

I have set the Source to external and in Value expression I tired

but my picture box shows error picture in both cases.

As I mentioned in my question, I have already done it.
If you use the whole path and you are deploying the reports in the server maybe that's the problem, because it's trying to load a path that it's not shared or accesible.

I'll try to use the source as "Database", it's not the easiest way but it should work. When the user chooses the image with the OpenFileDialog you save that image in the DB and then pass the name to the report as parameter and load the image.

"Please do not repeat the same question again, you already asked it, you can modify it, if it's necessary."

I am trying to save the full path into the database and then pass it to the report.
But that is also not working.
The trick is to put

Do not put "=
You may also need to set external image as

Me.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.EnableExternalImages = True
before the report is being refreshed
