Upload Image File to SQL

I am wanting to create a visual basic 6 application to upload an image stored on my hard drive to a SQL database.  I have an image field that I am using to store the binary data.  Thanks in advance for the help!

A word of advice:

Instead of storing the images in your database, it is better to store the path of the image in the database.

Why? Doing so will boost system performance and you can utilize the size of the database.

Imagine, if you will store am image of size 100 kb. The size of you database will increment of 100 kb... While, If you store only the path of the image in your database the database while increment only of small amount.
