You must load images to dataset (table) then assign it as a report datasource. Here is an example:
' Function: CreateData
  '       Creates a dataset that has 1 table with two fields: Country (string), and img (blob/byte[])
  '       Adds four records to this table
  Public Function CreateData() As DataSet
      Dim data As New DataSet()

      ' add a table 'Images' to the dataset

      ' add two fields
      data.Tables(0).Columns.Add("Country", System.Type.GetType("System.String"))
      data.Tables(0).Columns.Add("img", System.Type.GetType("System.Byte[]"))

      ' create a schema (this schema is used to design the report)
      ' after the report is created, schema file is no longer required
      'data.WriteXmlSchema(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() & "\DynamicImage.xsd")

      ' add four rows
      AddImageRow(data.Tables(0), "USA", Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() & "\USA.jpg")
      AddImageRow(data.Tables(0), "Canada", Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() & "\Canada.jpg")
      AddImageRow(data.Tables(0), "Germany", Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() & "\Germany.jpg")
      AddImageRow(data.Tables(0), "Japan", Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() & "\Japan.jpg")

      Return (data)
  End Function
  ' Prcocedure: AddImageRow
  '       reads an image file and adds this image to a dataset table
  '   [in]    tbl         DataTable
  '           country     name of a country
  '           filename    name of an image file
  Public Sub AddImageRow(ByRef tbl As DataTable, ByVal country As String, ByVal filename As String)
      Dim fs As New FileStream(filename, FileMode.Open)   ' create a file stream
      Dim br As New BinaryReader(fs)                      ' create binary reader
      Dim row As DataRow

      ' create a new datarow
      row = tbl.NewRow()

      ' set country field and image field
      row(0) = country
      row(1) = br.ReadBytes(br.BaseStream.Length)

      ' add this row to the table

      ' clean up
      br = Nothing
      fs = Nothing
  End Sub

Can you explain, where is a problem, error?
Member 9799439 31-Jan-13 6:04am
I have written the above code that you provided in Class.So when i run the program it generates a blank report and nothing is displayed.Code is not being executed despite keeping a debug point.
Since i am working in Jewellery line,we have multiple designs added daily which makes it difficult to add rows for every design.So i wanted a solution which will run the code dyanmically without manually editing the code everytime.
The designs should directly be accessed through the folder where the designs are saved.

str="select distinct code,designname from table1 left join table2 on table1.code=table2.code"
cmd = New SqlCommand(Str, sqlconn)
      adpt = New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
      DataSetDesign = New DataSet
      adpt.Fill(DataSetDesign, "MYtable")

Create a new table "Pic"
Field : DSG_CODE,varchar(15)

        Dim iCtr As Integer
            Dim cPict, cCat, cDesCode, SqlStr As String

            SqlStr = "Delete From pict"

            Dim cmdInsert As SqlCommand
            cmdInsert = New SqlCommand(SqlStr, sqlconn)

            For iCtr = 0 To DataSetDesign.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
                cCat = Trim(DataSetDesign.Tables(0).Rows(iCtr).Item("designname"))
                cDesCode = Trim(DataSetDesign.Tables(0).Rows(iCtr).Item("code"))

                'Path of Folder
                cPict = "y:\" + cCat + "\DM 3D " + cDesCode + ".JPG"

                    Dim oImg As Byte()
                    oImg = ReadImageFile(cPict)
                    SqlStr = "Insert Into pict(oImg, DSG_Code)values(@oImg , @DSG_Code)"
                    cmdInsert = New SqlCommand(SqlStr, sqlconn)
                    'cmdInsert(Sqlstr, sqlconn)
                    cmdInsert.Parameters.Add("@oImg", Data.SqlDbType.Binary).Value = oImg
                    cmdInsert.Parameters.Add("@DSG_CODE", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = cDesCode
