Dear Gurus!
I need work with picture (.png, .bmp, .jpg) as Element on axMapControl, pictures  size is in the range 10 ?? - 7000 ??. When the size is about 10 - 60 kb - there is no problem. But when the size is about 7000 kb - it's impossible to work with it, due to the slow work of the program and the distortion of the raster.
   How to programmatically add an image to the map by analogy with Add Data in Arcmap?
Thanks in advance!
