Bulk loading Picture Marker Symbols into .style for ArcMap?

Bulk loading Picture Marker Symbols into .style for ArcMap?


I have close to 1000 PNG files that I want to make Picture Marker Symbols stored in a .style file. I am very familiar with Microsoft Access, Python and ArcGIS and I know some C# and .NET. When I look at the symbols in the .style with Access, they are stored as a Long binary data.

Does anyone know how I can get a PNG into the .style file without loading each one individually?


I didn't have a straightforward solution to bulk load images into a style without programming, so I tackled the problem from a different direction. Font symbols load faster than images so I used this video to help me make a font with Inkscape.
