Yeah, do what the boss says, but I will tend agree, storing the images the database will slow it down. There is one place that holds large images and even small vids in the DB. IO over kill. They have two servers to run one database.

However, we do what the boss says.
I'm with Bastien on this one, I've stored images in a database in the past, and although I have to admit that it makes a certain amount of sense in the fact it keeps all your data in one place, practically it's a pain in the butt. It's faster, more efficient and better in almost every respect to let the filesystem do what it does best and store the files, and the database deal with data you need to organize and sort.
