Hi guys 'n gals,

How would I go about saving a JPG picture into a MySQL Database, with C#? I know how to connect to the database, but I have no idea what I would go about converting the picture into data, which I can store into the database, let alone, reading it back out.


Any ideas?

Cheers!

This might be helpful.
Its used with asp page and MSDE but it should be very similar
instead image data type in MYSQL use BLOB.

I dont know the exact needs of the application but I think, instead of inserting an image to the database, upploading it to the some server location and saving the path in the database is better.
