    Yes, here is how it is done:

    1. Design Report you want add a embedded image on.
    2. Select "View/Layout" to open Visual Studio.
    3. Now select "Report/Embedded Images..." I'm using Visual Studio Web Express 2005 this might be place different in Visual Studio 2008.
    4. Select "New Image..." to add the image you want to embed into the report.
    5. Your Image is now added to list. Select "OK" to add image.
    6. Now to add to the image. From the "Toolbox" drop a image control onto your report.
    7. With the image control selected, set the property "Source=Embedded" under "Data"
    8. If you added your image correctly in step 5 you will now be able to select this image from the property "Value".
    9. Embedded is now added to your report. Save and close Visual Studio.
    10. Import updated RDLC into the Report in Classic Client. And compile the report.
    11. Run the report from RoleTailored client.

    Let me know if this was where you where after.

    Thanks Claus,

    I found same solution as well. It's strange however, that wizard for image doesn't work, when selecting image from the toolbox.
