Like someone mentioned on the link you posted; storing the images in the
database does offer a layer of security, as database access is far
easier to control than file access.


It also offers ease of moving, You don't have to move both database and file system to a different server, just the database. Additionally, the file paths are always correct -- just reference the database. So, there are upsides to storing images in a database.

I haven't read a single MySQL/PHP book (dozens) that claims storing images in a database is a bad idea.
