I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you sending the proper headers? Without headers, this jpg is just data to the computer.

Stacy SpearPresident/Principal ConsultantCommented:
Did you inspect what is being returned to the browser? Is it really getting the proper headers? I just want to eliminate that being thinking the data is stored incorrectly in the DB. Although, blob is the best datatype AFAIK.

firefox has a few extensions that allow you to view the requested and returned headers on items.
