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. Thanks, Ash http://www.ashleysheridan.co.uk
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.
