    Images in a DB

    you can save images ( binary data ) to a blob type field in a DB.

    the mechanics depend on the DB and programing platform you are useing.

    in my experiance it is better to save your images in a file structure then save the URL/Location in a text field in the DB.

    returning an images as part of a sql query can slow down th works and eat up network resources on your back end.
