Posted May 20, 2004 in Databases.
Back in the mists of time, when I was studying Oracle's form building tool, I had a go at storing images in a database as BLOBs. Despite that, I have never used a database for storing images to be rendered on the web. I have always stored a path, and then bound that (to use Dreamweaver parlance) to a page.
At some point in the near future, I intend to include an image gallery in my hand-rolled blogging tool. I was wondering if anyone ever tried stored their images in their databases? I think it unlikely, but I am a curious type, so I thought I'd ask anyway.
