You can use a Blob Field to store ANY kind of file in a database, use something like:

MyTable.FieldByName('ITEMPIC').LoadFromFile('SOMEPIC.JPG') ;

to fill the field; you can similarly retrieve the contents back to a file with the SaveToFile() method.  DISPLAYING a .JPG is another question: Delphi 3 comes with a .JPG display component, but for D1 or D2 you'll either have to roll your own or buy a component or library (I use ImageLib and am pretty happy with it).
