Hi there.

Which way would be the most efficient/fastest to access images from an image
A) Store image files in a hash directory structure AND storing each file's
information in a mysql table
B) Storing image information in mysql table AND storing the image in a BLOB
field in that table.

The way I see it, considerations to be taken into acount:
- Is it quicker/better to retrieve image from table & then stream out to
browser OR simply direct the browser to the file?
  i.e <IMG SRC="/imagelib/image.php?iImageID=10"> OR <IMG
- Will a database OR filesystem be more scalable i.e. which wil perform
better when there are 10000 images in the libary?

Thanks in advance
