This actually isn't as difficult as you may think using BDE and data aware controls.

Create the table / column with Image as the datatype.  Create a BDE alias, and hook up in the traditional TQuery/TTable, TDatasource manner.  

To get the bitmap you want INTO the database just use the LoadFromFile() method of the TDBImage class's Picture property.

When you post using the navigator or a TDataSet.Post() method, the BDE writes the graphic to the database.
