help about where to start

hi peeps

I'm after a bit of advice on where to start with a project.

I need to be able to browse to and open a folder from a form, and import images from within that folder to (i guess?) another form?

I then need to print each image on 3 different reports, but in order as below...

Image 1 - report 1
Image 1 - report 2
Image 1 - report 3
Image 2 - report 1
Image 2 - report 2
Image 2 - report 3


Once images / reports are printed they can be removed.

Should I have a page that shows maybe 40 images and a big print button? or 40 images with a selection box by each one and a big print button? or 40 images and 40 print buttons? etc

The reports will need to chnage in the future, so a option to select any or all of the reports would be a really good idea.

I'm not really sure on how / where to being. Any advice for a beginner would be ace. I have access 2013 but I much prefer 2003 as I know where all the buttons are!

Will happily pay someone to make this, provided it's done right.

Re: help about where to start

I'll try an answer but only because no one else do until now.
See the attached database.

Fill the table with some pictures paths.
Open the form.
Double click an item in the listbox.

Note that is not necessary to fill a table with paths if you have no need to store this addresses.
Scan the folder then, for each file, put the address in the public variable PicturePath then print yours 3 reports.

If you have more questions feel free to ask.

Good luck !
