you'll need to be a bit more forthcoming with some details.

what kind of database?
what is the overall function / reason for the site?

people will then be able to provide more of an answer.  remember different databases use different ways of storing images and different site functions may require you to do it in a different way to others.

Just a thought - given the timestamp on the Q's it's likely that alexgreen wasn't available to repost before we did.
(I wouldn't want to penalise him for taking the time to get a clarification on the question before posting links...)
Plus the sentiment that this type of thing is "very much" platform and server dependent is a valuable one.

Recommend a 3-way split.
