try this...

        Dim cn As New SQLConnection(ConStr) 'Your Connection
        Dim Cmd As New SQLCommand("SELECT ID,MyImage FROM MyTable", cn) 'Change Table and field names

        Dim DA As New SQLDataAdapter(Cmd)
        Dim DT As New DataTable("MyTable")

        Try
            cn.Open()
            DA.Fill(DT)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

        Dim i As Integer = DT.Rows.Count
        If i > 0 Then
            Dim BTImage() As Byte = DT.Rows(0)("MyImage")
            Dim MSImage As New MemoryStream(BTImage)
           Image.FromStream(MSImage).Save("C:\YOUR PATH", Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)
'Give Path and Format
        End If
        cn.Close()



I had this code running for Oledb I just changed the OleDB to SQL, hopefully it should work....
