I read a lot of different advice for this
My oppinion would be to store the images in a directory
and store the path names in the database.

It is more easy to make a 'suited' directory structure
for the images.

For 30.000 images you need a lot of diskspace.

Storing the images in the database would make it i guess
to slow.

Hi folks,

A friend of mine would like to use PHP/MySQL to host a web based photo
archive. I believe it will hold around 20,000 to 30,000 photos at a
reasonable size for web display - perhaps 100 k or so each.  I expect he'd
have a small preview 'clickable' to a larger version.

I searched the list archives for help but have still come up with two

For the type and quantity of content, would blob storage of the images be
best or should he use OS/directory storage and display them by calling the
file path?

Is there an easy way to upload an entire folder of images into a MySQL db?
(I've checked hotscripts.com etc but most of the image stuff only handled
single image uploads)

Cheers and thanks
