I keep hearing this from people (not to store images in mysql), but I
would like to hear a bit more about why. Mysql has blob fields, so it
seems perfectly reasonable to use them, doesn't it? I'm storing some
images in a database and what's attractive to me about it is that I can
put the images anywhere I like. I guess I could mount an image directory
over NFS, but it seems easier and more consistent to use sql. Any
thoughts on this?
