    You can't - literally speaking. You can set button picture property as you already may realize, but you can't "buttonize" an image. I don't know the max image size allowed on a button, but do know that it can be a jpg in at least version 2016. Then there is an image control, which has a click event but limited properties compared to a button.
    Tips for posting problems:
    1) "doesn't work" doesn't help. Post error message text/numbers and/or state what's happening.
    2) if posting code or sql, use code tags; specify on which code line errors occur, if applicable
    3) try to be specific; assume we know nothing about your issue - because we don't!

    Make all suggested changes in copies of your database or to its objects.
