About retrieving these images you can just use TDBImage component for visualization...

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, ExtCtrls, Clipbrd, ExtDlgs, DB, DBCtrls, JPEG, IBTable,
  IBCustomDataSet;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    DBImage1: TDBImage;
    OpenPictureDialog: TOpenPictureDialog;
    IBTable1: TIBTable;
    DataSource1: TDataSource;
  private  { Private declarations }
    function  DBImage_Post: Boolean;

begin
  B := False;
  try
    if OpenPictureDialog.Execute then
    begin
      CB := TClipboard.Create;
      try
        Image := TImage.Create(Self);
        try
          Image.Picture.LoadFromFile(OpenPictureDialog.FileName);
          CB.Assign(Image.Picture);
          if not (DBImage1.DataSource.DataSet.State in [dsInsert,dsEdit]) then
            DBImage1.DataSource.DataSet.Edit;
          DBImage1.Picture.Assign(CB);
          try
            DBImage1.DataSource.DataSet.Post;
            B := True;
          except
            B := False;
          end;
        finally
          Image.Destroy;
