Image to Database and Back Again

I need move an image from the image property of a picture box to a database and back again using VB.NET.

I've found a number of references showing how to do this.  They each take a slightly different approach but all only work with Option Strict Off.  When option strict is on they all result in an invalid cast exception.

Can someone provide the code to save and retrieve image data using VB.NET with option strict on?  (I need a solution that does not involve writing the data to a separate file)

I have seen those articles.  They suffer from the same problem I mentioned in that they seem to rely on a type conversion that works with option strict off but for which I can't figure out how to cast directly.  (one is in C# but appears, at least, to be similar to others I have tried.

I would be delighted to clean up this question.  Other than increasing the points there doesn't seem to be a way to manage questions anymore.  What action should I take?

Joe_Griffith,
Alas, the only direct user option for closing a Question is to Accept a Comment as an Answer.  The following options are available if you post a request to Community Support:
* Split points between two or more Experts
* Delete the question entirely
* Close it, but get a refund of your points

In this case, you are already in the queue for that last option so you need take no action.  If you want to exercise any of these options on your other questions, just make a 0-pt Question in the CS topic area and a Moderator will help you (be sure to include the question ID #).
