    Never store images in the database for good many reasons instead<BR>save the file on the file system and store a UNC path to that image in the database, this is highly recommended and practiced.<BR>Even though the SQL Server has a data type BLOB to store images<BR>as binary data, it effects the performance in a big way.<BR>Any further information, reply to this message<BR>Have fun
