Basic stucture is like this..

string sSQL = "SELECT Binary FROM ApplicationSetup";
// Binary      
byte []aData = (byte[])m_oDataProvider.ExecuteScalar( sSQL );

// Create a file
FileStream newFile = new FileStream( sPath , FileMode.Create);

// Write data to the file
newFile.Write(Buffer, 0, Buffer.Length);

// Close file
newFile.Close();

you have to create a aspx page which is going to render the picture
here is the code (Page_Load) :

byte[] buf=(byte[])ds.Tables[0].Rows[0]["Photo"];
MemoryStream ms=new MemoryStream(buf,0,buf.Length);
Bitmap bmp=new Bitmap(ms);
Response.ContentType=ds.Tables[0].Rows[0]["PhotoType"].ToString();
if(Response.ContentType.ToLower().IndexOf("gif")!=-1)
   bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream,ImageFormat.Gif);
else
   bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream,ImageFormat.Jpeg);

Photo is the binary field
PhotoType identify the type of picture whi is stored

you can display it on a web page like this :

<img src="photo.aspx"/>
