It depends on the database that you are using.  One of the best databases I
have used for storing images has been with oracle.  You need to look up the
documentation on there web site.  As for the other
databases, I have not used images with them.  On oracle I have used BLOBS
and CLOBS.  BLOBS are binary large objects.  You need to be a member of
Oracle Tech Network...Here is the url for the LOBs section:

Hope this helps...

Subject: [PHP-DB] A good tutorial

If anyone knows of one, would someone please point me towards a good
tutorial on storing images in a database then fetching them out again.

I would really appreciate it and thanks in advance!
